Radical Satire and Print Culture, 1790-1822 by Marcus Wood

Book Description

Radical Satire and Print Culture 1790-1822 focuses on the work produced collaboratively between 1816 and 1822 by the poet and radical journalist William Hone and the brilliant young graphic satirist George Cruikshank. Dr Wood provides a much needed analytical framework for Regency radical satire uncovering a set of new sources and previously unknown cultural contexts for Hone and Cruikshank's work, which is shown to combine modernity and tradition in thrilling ways. Hone fused the literary and political inheritance of eighteenth-century satire with contemporary developments in advertising , popular publishing and mass marketing; Cruikshank combined the sophisticated conventions of the political print with the most up-to-date methods of advertizing, politics and propaganda. Entertaining and original, this is an important contribution to the study of radical satire, which sheds new light on the relations between popular political authors and graphic artists and the major Romantic writers of the period.

Black Milk by Marcus Wood Black Milk, Hardback (May 2013)

Black Milk is the first in-depth analysis of the visual arts that effloresced around slavery in Brazil and North America in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. Exploring prints, photographs, paintings, sculptures, ceramics, and ephemera, it will change everything we knew, or thought we knew, about the visual archive of Atlantic slavery.

Poetry of Slavery by Marcus Wood Poetry of Slavery, Paperback (October 2003)

This volume collects the most important works of poetry generated by English and North American slavery, mixing poetry by the major Anglo-American Romantic poets with curious, and sometimes brilliant verse by a range of now forgotten literary figures.

Slavery, Empathy and Pornography by Marcus Wood Slavery, Empathy and Pornography, Hardback (November 2002)

Considering the operations of slavery and of abolition propaganda on the thought and literature of English from the late-18th to the mid-19th centuries, this title shows that slavery was, and still is, a dilemma for everyone in England, and seeks to explain why English society has constructed Atlantic slavery in the way it has.
