The chapter continues the argument of the eighth by arguing that poems as well as novels in the period became magazine‐like, the key example being Don Juan. The serio‐comic tone that Don Juan shares with the magazines has claims, the chapter argues, to be recognized as the dominant literary mode of the period.
