This chapter discusses Shakespeare as well, but considers Romantic Shakespeareanism. It is argued in this chapter that Byron's neo-classicism has evolved into a spirit of intellectual opposition to the critical attitudes that were adopted by his British and European contemporaries. References are made to Coleridge, the Schlegel brothers, and Leigh Hunt, to name a few.
