The focus of the book is the nature of Byrons relationship with his public and its effect on his poetry- a subject that has remained largely unexplored. Dr Martin considers Byrons anomalous position as an aristocrat in a literary market governed by commercial interests and middle class tastes and reading habits. He suggests that the whole of Byrons poetry can be seen as a performance determined by a number of factors: Byrons anxieties about his modernity, his contemporaries, and the image his readers were ready to fashion for him.
