Popular Romanticism? Publishing, Readership and the Making of Literary History

Authorship, Commerce and the Public: Scenes of Writing 1750-1850
Abstract:
This book: These essays explore the remarkable expansion of publishing from 1750 to 1850 which reflected the growth of literacy and the diversification of the reading public. Experimentation with new genres, methods of advertising, marketing and dissemination, forms of critical reception and modes of access to writing are also examined in detail. This collection represents a new wave of critical writing extending cultural materialism beyond its accustomed concern with historicizing the words on the page into the economics of literature and the investigation of neglected areas of print culture.
