British Literary Culture after Waterloo

Richard Cronin

  • Asks what the three most spectacular publishing phenomena of the age - Scott's novels, Byron's Don Juan, and the new literary magazines - have in common
  • Identifies the decade after Waterloo as the period in which publishing became an industry catering for a mass readership
  • Demonstrates how the writers in the period were divided into two groups, one of which wrote for the current press, the other of which addressed posterity
  • Focuses on the literary relations between Scotland and England
