Radical Satire and Print Culture 1790-1822 focuses on the work produced collaboratively between 1816 and 1822 by the poet and radical journalist William Hone and the brilliant young graphic satirist George Cruikshank.Dr Wood provides a much needed analytical framework for Regency radical satire uncovering a set of new sources and previously unknown cultural contexts for Hone and Cruikshank's work, which is shown to combine modernity and tradition in thrilling ways. Hone fused the literary and politicalinheritance of eighteenth-century satire with contemporary developments in advertising , popular publishing and mass marketing; Cruikshank combined the sophisticated conventions of the political print with the most up-to-date methods of advertizing, politics and propaganda.Entertaining and original, this is an important contribution to the study of radical satire, which sheds new light on the relations between popular political authors and graphic artists and the major Romantic writers of the period.
Marcus Wood is at Senior Lecturer, University of West Indies, Mona, Jamaica.

Editorial Reviews

`an important addition to recent work on popular radicalism in the Romantic period ... There is ... no doubting his claim to have 'stressed the daring and even joyous nature of much radical propaganda' and to have 'examined that work in its own terms and not as a poor cousin to the canon'.That job has been carried out with an admirable combination of enthusiasm and precision.'John Whale, University of Leeds, Review of English Studies, Vol. XLVII, No. 188, Nov '96
