Jane Stabler offers the first full-scale examination of Byron's poetic form in relation to historical debates of his time. Responding to recent studies of publishing and audiences in the Romantic period, Stabler argues that Byron's poetics developed in response to contemporary cultural history and his reception by the English reading public. Drawing on extensive new archive research into Byron's correspondence and reading, Stabler traces the complexity of the intertextual dialogues that run through his work. For example, Stabler analyses Don Juan alongside Galignani's Messenger - Byron's principal source of news about British politics while in Italy - and refers to hitherto unpublished letters between Byron's publishers and his friends to reveal a powerful impulse among his contemporaries to direct his controversial poetic style to their own conflicting political ends. This fascinating study will be of interest to Byronists and, more broadly, to scholars of Romanticism in general.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"The book is illuminating about and alert to the current state of Byronic and Romantic criticism, yet it sustains a bracing, graceful independence. It reveals a high degree of aethetic sensitivity, even as it deploys original historical and contextual knowledge." Wordsworth Circle
"Detailed.... [S]hould prove interesting to Byronists. Recommended." Choice
