Radical print culture from 1815 to 1822

Wed 15 February 2012

Cambridge University Library

'"Radical is a new word since my time - it was not in the political vocabulary in 1816' (Byron in a letter to John Cam Hobhouse, April, 1820)

Following the end of the war with France, street literature, in the form of pamphlets, broadsides, illustrations, pornography, pirate publications and advertising, became increasingly radical, and ephemeral, as it took on the major issues of the day. This paper will examine radicalism in this period and its literary and cultural legacy.
