The Economics of Poetr y takes an innovative approach to the genre of Neo-Latin poetry, encompassing the entire process of poetic production, from composition and physical realization to the formal presentation to the honorand. This process was not predicated upon post-Romantic ideas of inspiration and originality, but rather upon the need to produce literary works in a timely fashion, often (though not exclusively) dependent upon the realities and exigencies of the contemporary political situation. Applying this approach across more than three centuries of literary production, this volume analyses the techniques employed and developed by authors all around the world to reduce the effort of poetic composition, streamline its production and facilitate its presentation when time was a crucial factor in success. To reveal the efficient techniques which authors employed in order to meet their deadlines, each essay focuses on a variety of works by the same writer and examines the full context of their production. The re-use and recycling of previous texts and rhetorical templates - and even the re-dedication of previously presented manuscripts - emerges as a central and essential modus operandi in response to the strict dictates of fast production.
The story of Oscar Wilde´s landmark 1882 American tour explains how this quotable literary eminence became famous for being famous. On January 3, 1882, Oscar Wilde, a 27-year-old ´´genius´´ - at least by his own reckoning - arrived in New York. The Dublin-born Oxford man had made such a spectacle of himself in London with his eccentric fashion sense, acerbic wit, and extravagant passion for art and home design that Gilbert & Sullivan wrote an operetta lampooning him. He was hired to go to America to promote that work by presenting lectures on interior decorating. But Wilde had his own business plan. He would go to promote himself. And he did, traveling some 15,000 miles and visiting 150 American cities as he created a template for fame creation that still works today. Though Wilde was only the author of a self-published book of poems and an unproduced play, he presented himself as a ´´star´´, taking the stage in satin breeches and a velvet coat with lace trim as he sang the praises of sconces and embroidered pillows - and himself. What Wilde so presciently understood is that fame could launch a career as well as cap one. David M. Friedman´s lively and often hilarious narrative whisks us across 19th-century America, from the mansions of Gilded Age Manhattan to roller-skating rinks in Indiana, from an opium den in San Francisco to the bottom of the Matchless silver mine in Colorado - then the richest on earth - where Wilde dined with twelve gobsmacked miners, later describing their feast to his friends in London as ´´First course: whiskey. Second course: whiskey. Third course: whiskey´´. But, as Friedman shows, Wilde was no mere clown; he was a strategist. From his antics in London to his manipulation of the media - Wilde gave 100 interviews in America, more than anyone else in the world in 1882 - he designed every move to increase his renown. There had been famous people before him, but Wilde was the first to become famous for being famous. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Robert Blumenfeld.
