Example text

Regina Hewitt and the readers of my Shelley-Newman article at the European Romantic Review helped shape my thinking about the history of Shelley’s poem and the theoretical implications of my archival findings. Edward Duffy, my mentor through the Keats-Shelley Association of America’s Junior Scholar Mentoring Program, provided invaluable criticism at an early stage. I want to thank Elizabeth Denlinger, curator of the Pforzheimer Collection at the New York Public Library, as well as the New York Romanticists’ Friendly Society for their encouraging comments.

And yet artistic innovations have in some respects been historically quite slow as well as idiosyncratic. Harvey Pekar once quipped that the “art” of comic art has been so limited that the modernism that transformed the very nature of painting during the 1910s-20s only reached American comics during the 1970s-90s. Even then, these advances of artistry appeared highly avant-garde, almost shocking, and doubtless unwanted by legions of superhero-trained, juvenile-mentality readers. Not only had the parameters of style and narrative been narrow, but outside of the daily press, in comic books, trends like war, horror, and love-interest comics tended to come and go in a rush, along with the bulk of the smaller publishers themselves.

Still, even the earliest comics of the 1890s offered hints that they might be at last understood and appreciated a century and more later. The discovery of a potentially massive daily readership with a taste for a new kind of illustration prompted the onset of comic strips as a major commercial art form of the fin de siècle, evolving within a generation or two into most of the modern versions that readers recognize today. How was it that the barely literate newspaper readership of the 1890s-1920s, obviously craving visual humor and drama, sought images of themselves (or of those distinctly unlike themselves), in art, or at least a kind of art, hitherto unknown?
