The Artistry of Exile

Jane Stabler

Oxford University Press

Chapter 1 looks at the 1816 company of exiles on the shores of Lake Leman (the threshold of the Shelleys and Byron’s Italian experience), and the Brownings’ delighted, bewildered entry into Pisa in 1846. The ideal of the intellectual group or circle is discussed in tandem with lamentations about the isolated, interior experience of banishment, and the unfamiliar texture of a new locale. Keeping mythic and material responses to exile in dialogue, the biblical book of Genesis and Sophocles’ tragedy of Philoctetes exemplify the polarities of solitary and communal exile

Keywords:   Barrett, Byron, Milton, Dante, Cain, Philoctetes
