Contents Introduction -- Writing for the future -- The Romantic culture of posterity -- Engendering posterity -- Wordsworth's survival -- Coleridge's conversation -- Keats's prescience -- Shelley's ghosts -- Byron's success -- Afterword
Summary This book offers a new theory of reception governing Romantic poetry, through its culture of posterity - a tradition of writing which demands that the poet should write for an audience of the future: the true poet, a figure of neglected genius, can only be properly appreciated after death
