Example text

Indeed, a conveniently schematic interpretation of Sin, Death and the Devil would see it as a Romantic meta-allegory of the creative process of caricature: Satan is the heroic idealisation of the defiant, rebellious artist; Sin is the emblem of the distorting and disfiguring imagination; and Death represents the symbolic destruction of the satirical target. This is perhaps going too far, but as the following discussion will show, the peculiar mystique of Milton’s ‘Satan, Sin and Death’ flows from its visual lusts and phobias, and it is these qualities that make it such an illuminating context for a re-examination of the aesthetics of caricature.

14 Romanticism and ­Caricature overstepped the mark? But this question merely raises another imponderable: what are the boundaries of caricature? Operating as it did outside of normal aesthetic and institutional rules, visual satire thrived on an imaginative freedom denied to most other artistic genres. 8 By demeaning a national figurehead in such an extreme manner, the print showcases caricature’s unique freedoms and complex pleasures. The argument of this chapter is that the famous Miltonic tableau provided the perfect platform to display such visual powers.

The shockwaves of these judicial crimes reverberate throughout the literature and culture of the Regency period and beyond – all that is needed are the methodological sensors to detect the tremors. This chapter takes up in a quite literal way the idea that forgery spectacularised the contradictions of the credit economy. The anti-hero of the following narrative is not the literary forger or bravura impostor but the spectral figure of the engraver: the generic producer of, on the one hand, both genuine and counterfeit currency and, on the other, the ‘shadow’ economy of popular graphic caricatures.
