John Schad

In this, the first book on Clough for over thirty years, John Schad celebrates Clough the anti-poet, a poet whose dedication to the strange world of continental thought makes him a most un-Victorian Victorian.

Description: Swinburne called him a bad poet, Tennyson called him dull, Saintsbury called him thin. Schad, John celebrates Clough the anti-poet, a loving laureate of the extraordinarily dull, who is so thin that we can see through, or beyond him. Clough, argues Schad, John, never gets in the way of the world, or worlds, of which he writes. And these worlds are many and various: ranging from the orthodox world of Anglican Oxford that Clough famously abandons, through the turbulent worlds of Paris and Rome that Clough visits in the wake of the revolutionary events of 1848, to the quietly desperate world of Clough’s final years. For Schad, John, though, Clough’s defining world is the very strange world of continental thought, a world which makes him a most un-Victorian Victorian.
