'Amorous Cavaliers': Keats, Barry Cornwall, and Francis Jeffrey

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The article presents criticism of literary works of authors like John Keats, Barry Cornwall and Francis Jeffrey. Most scholars balk at the idea of John Keats ma having engaged in a significant relationship with his best-selling rival Barry Cornwall. Celebrated in his own day for phenomenally successful volumes such as "A Sicilian Story and Marcian Colonna," the latter sold nearly 700 copies on its first day of publication in February 1820. Cornwall is now viewed as a crowd-pleasing impostor, an opportunistic panderer to popular taste, a charlatan of no lasting relevance.
