The Artistry of Exile

Jane Stabler

Oxford University Press

Chapter 6 develops the nexus of narrative, history, and the law by considering the Dedication to Don Juan as a document of satiric belonging and non-belonging; the dramatic dialogues of Landor (including his dramatic scenes on the Cenci) as a distinctive form of political transmission to the reader, and the framing books of The Ring and the Book as an exiled discussion of the relationship between history, poetry, and readerly affect. The chapter closes with a discussion of Elizabeth Barrett and Robert Browning’s controversial evaluation of the printed word over music as the art form most able to penetrate and release the sealed world of another consciousness
