Once described as 'England's Apollo' James Brydges, first Duke of Chandos (1674-1744) was an outstanding patron of the arts during the first half of the eighteenth century. Having acquired great wealth and influence as Paymaster-General of Queen Anne's forces abroad, Chandos commissioned work from leading artists, architects, poets and composers including Godfrey Kneller, William Talman, Sir John Vanbrugh, Sir James Thornhill, John Gay and George Frederick Handel. Despite his associations with such renowned figures, Chandos soon gained a reputation for tasteless extravagance. This reputation was not helped by the publication in 1731 of Alexander Pope's poem 'Of Taste' which was widely regarded as a satire upon Chandos and Cannons, the new house he was building near Edgware. The poem destroyed Chandos's reputation as a patron of the arts and ensured that he was remembered as a man lacking in taste. Yet, as this book shows, such a judgement is plainly unfair when the Duke's patronage is considered in more depth and understood within the artistic context of his age. By investigating the patronage and collections of the Duke, through an examination of documentary sources and contemporary accounts, it is possible to paint a very different picture of the man. Rather than the epitome of bad taste described by his enemies, it is clear that Chandos was an enlightened patron who embraced new ideas, and strove to establish a taste for the Palladian in England, which was to define the Georgian era.

Since at least Tudor times there have been architectural salvages: panelling, chimney pieces, doorways, or any fixtures and fittings might be removed from an old interior to be replaced by more fashionable ones. Not surprisingly a trade developed and architects, builders, masons, and sculptors sought out these salvages. By 1820 there was a growing profession of brokers and dealers in London, and a century later antique shops were commonplace throughout England. This fascinating book documents the break-up, sale, and re-use of salvages in Britain and America, where the fashion for so-called “Period Rooms” became a mainstay of the transatlantic trade. Much appreciated by museum visitors, period rooms have become something of a scholarly embarrassment, as research reveals that many were assembled from a variety of sources. One American embraced the trade as no other--the larger-than-life William Randolph Hearst--who purchased tens of thousands of architectural salvages between 1900 and 1935.

Dans le contexte litteraire elisabethain et jacobeen, fortement impregne de l'art oratoire de l'Antiquite, l'oeuvre de William Shakespeare est marquee par l'ideal rhetorique d'abondance ou "copia," rendue celebre par Erasme a la Renaissance. Si le dramaturge celebre la "copia" qui envahit tous les genres oratoires, l'espace public du "forum" comme l'espace prive de l'alcove, et jusqu'aux minutieuses descriptions "(ekphraseis)" incrustees dans la trame de l'oeuvre dramatique, il en denonce aussi les limites et les exces. La "copia" peut alors s'inverser en "loquacitas" ou prolixite vide. Son oeuvre est egalement traversee par la double thematique de l'abondance et de la vacuite. L'instabilite de cette profusion se manifeste a travers la subversion du mythe de l'age d'or, le renversement de la "cornucopia" en tonneau des Danaides et le jeu sur la figure du silene platonicien. Entre la pompe et le neant, l'oeuvre de Shakespeare, inscrite dans la crise epistemologique qui touche l'Angleterre et l'Europe a la fin du 16e et au debut du 17e siecle, correspond a un point d'inflexion esthetique qui inverse les polarites et fait de l'abondance le masque de la vacuite."

Anxieties about decline were a prominent feature of British public discourse in the late eighteenth and early nineteenth century. These anxieties were borne out repeatedly in books and periodicals, pamphlets and poems. Tracing the reciprocal development of Romantic-era Britain's rapidly expanding literary and market cultures through the lens of decline, Jonathan Sachs offers a fresh way of understanding British Romanticism. The book focuses on three aspects of literary experience - questions of value, the fascination with ruins, and the representation of slow time - to explore how shifting conceptions of progress and change inform a post-enlightenment sense of cultural decline. Combining close readings of Romantic literary texts with an examination of works from political economy, historical writing, classical studies, and media history the book reveals for the first time how anxieties about decline impacted literary form and shaped Romantic debates about poetry and the meaning of literature.
