Clough, Ambarvalia

Arthur Hugh Clough's Ambarvalia collection was published in January 1849. A follow-up to his previous narrative poem The Bothie of Toper-na-fuosichAmbarvalia consisted of unpublished poems from Clough’s time at Oxford. It was met with some “charges of obscurity” (Chorley 180) by the periodical press. Ambarvalia was Clough's last poetry publication until Amours de Voyage in 1858.
