The duty of defining a word is certainly not an easy task. This is particularly true of a word which, after many attempts, is still not defined satisfactorily. “Victorianism” is that type of word. It would seem that many of the “ism” words are so associated with connotations that precise and accurate definitions are impossible. It is, however, mandatory to define “Victorianism” in an attempt to discuss the “Victorianism” of some of the mid-century “Victorian” works of three major poets of the period: Tennyson, Browning, and Arnold.
