Abstract

This conference paper argued that, in the years immediately following Waterloo, poetry was probably never more important again. In the repressive atmosphere after the war, when any dissent among the unrepresented 95% of the population was being violently supressed, poetry with its potential for transmission to even the illiterate became an essential radical political form.
