This introductory chapter discusses the theme of this volume which is about the connection between the careers of English poets John Keats and Barry Cornwall or Bryan Waller Procter. This volume examines the parallels and differences in the efforts of both poets to attune their work to the prevailing frequencies of taste and considers the period between early 1818 and February 1821 when they competed for the same demography of readers in England. It also investigates the reasons behind Cornwall's initial and Keats' longer-term capture of the audience and considers the poetic, political and commercial contexts of the Barry Cornwall ‘phenomenon’.

Keywords:   English poets, John Keats, Bryan Cornwall, readers, England, poetic context, political context, commercial context
