The introduction assesses current scholarship on Victorian literature and religion, arguing that the poetry of ‘faith’ has recently started to come back into critical favour, and also investigates current thinking on literary and cultural form, or ‘new formalism’. It locates the book in relation to this critical/theoretical movement and comments on the Victorian religious contexts for ‘form’.

Keywords: form; new formalism; strategic formalism; religion; poetics; organicism
