Riede, David G.

Edward Fitzgerald: Melancholy, Orientalism, Aestheticism. David G. Riede.
In: Allegories of One’s Own Mind. Melancholy in Victorian Poetry. Columbus, Ohio State University Press, 2005. p. 188 - 202.

Riede's book concludes with a chapter on FitzGerald, in which the Rubáiyát is read as providing a link between the deeply troubled melancholy of the early Victorians and the more disengaged lassitude of late-Victorian aestheticism.
