In the years after the Battle of Waterloo, Britain's literary scene was dominated by two towering figures: Walter Scott and Byron. As this scholarly yet engaging study reveals, it was also a period in which magazines - many of them scurrilous - burgeoned, and publishing became an industry serving a mass readership. It was an age of contradictions, in which a cult of 'sympathy' vied with an appetite for scathing satire, and in which literary rivalries could end in fatal duels.
