Beschreibung

In Byron's Shadow examines the history of how and why English and American authors projected their own concerns and consciousness onto modern Greece, tracing how the conception of the country evolved from a politicised, feminised, Apollonian space during the Roman era to a carefree Dionysian lotus land in the last decade of Modernism. Author David Roessel draws on a wide range of sources to create a model for literary history that synthesises literary investigation and cultural studies to develop a fuller understanding of the historical forces influencing the Anglo-American conception of modern Greece.
