Summary

British salons, with guest such as Byron, Moore, Thackeray, and Baillie, were veritable hothouses of political and cultural agitation in the nineteenth century. In this comprehensive study of the British salon between the 1780s and the 1840s, Schmidt traces the activities of three salonnières: Mary Berry, Lady Holland, and the Countess of Blessington. Mapping out the central place these circles held in London, this study explains to what extent they shaped intellectual debate and publishing ventures. Using a large number of sourcesdiaries, letters, silver-fork novels, satires, travel writing, Keepsakes, and imaginary conversations the book establishes sociable networks of days gone by.
