Abstract:

"The idea of Greece and its place in the modern world is situated on the border of conceptual geography. English and American authors have tried to come to terms with the dualism of Greece by assigning ancient Greece to the West and modern Greece to the East or the Balkans, but without ever quite succeeding in making a clean distinction. The political and cultural topics that emerge on this fault line between East and West illuminate how English and American writers viewed both their own culture and that of the East.

In Bryon's Shadow draws on a wide range of sources to create a model for literary history that synthesizes literary investigation and cultural studies to develop a fuller understanding of the historical forces influencing the Anglo-American conception of modern Greece."--BOOK JACKET.
