While artistically ambitious poets of the era are often characterized as preferring a lasting future fame to contemporary popularity, this book reveals that a sophisticated, strategic and fascinated engagement with new modes of fame was central to the experiments with literary form of poets such as Byron, Keats, Shelley and Barrett Browning.
ERIC EISNER is Assistant Professor of English at George Mason University, USA, where he teaches courses in eighteenth- and nineteenth-century British literature and culture, Romanticism, literary theory and cultural studies.
