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.
