Publisher's Synopsis

One of the most famous Victorian poems, 'The Angel in the House' is a celebration of domesticity, motherhood, and feminine virtues. Written by Coventry Patmore, the poem tells the story of his courtship and marriage to his wife, Emily, and their life together as husband and wife. Although the poem has been criticized for its sentimentalism and narrow views of gender roles, it remains an important text for understanding Victorian attitudes toward marriage and family life.
