Summary
"This book provides one case study in a history that has yet to be written, of a phenomenon that has yet to be adequately theorised. It argues that modern celebrity culture began in the Romantic period and that Lord Byron should be understood as one of its earliest examples and most astute critics. Tom Mole approaches celebrity as a cultural apparatus-consisting of the relations between an individual, an industry and an audience - that took shape in response to the industrialised print culture of the Romantic period. Under that rubric he investigates the often strained interactions of artistic endeavour and commercial enterprise, the material conditions of Byron's publications, and the place of celebrity culture in the history of the self. Byron's Romantic Celebrity sheds new light on the Romantic poetics of personality by showing how commercial collaboration and creative compromise made a public profile possible."--BOOK JACKET
