The article discusses some of issues involved in teaching Victorian poetry and the body, whether at the undergraduate or postgraduate level. A related course that the author has been teaching in various forms for years, which is the Victorian Sensations, are briefly tackled. It is noted that in terms of pedagogy, the method showed in this paper, could be described as formally inflected close reading, with attention to cultural and historical contexts. In teaching of poetry, the author aims to help students understand wider cultural forms through detailed attention to the microcosm of the poem's language.
