British Satire and the Politics of Style, 1789-1832 (Cambridge Studies in Romanticism)

Gary Dyer


Gary Dyer breaks new floor by way of surveying and studying hundreds of thousands of satirical poems and prose narratives released in Britain in the course of the Romantic interval. those works were missed by way of literary students, happy that satire disappeared within the past due eighteenth century. Dyer argues that satire persevered to be a big and widely-read style, and that modern political and social conflicts gave new meanings to conventions inherited from classical Rome and eighteenth-century England. He incorporates a bibliography of greater than seven hundred volumes containing satirical verses.
