'The city disinterred': the Shelley circle and the revolution at Naples

Forskningsoutput: TidskriftsbidragArtikel i vetenskaplig tidskrift

Abstract

This essay examines Byron's and Shelley's reactions to, and involvement with, the Neapolitan Revolution of 1820–21, using them to focus a debate about conflicting constructions of history in their writing, and to question subsequently conventional accounts of their creative relationship. It concentrates on Shelley's Ode to Naples, which it identifies as in important rhetorical blow in Shelley's public struggle with Byron over the correct interpretation of Italian – and, by extension, European – political history.
