O'Shaughnessy's engagement with aestheticism, socialism, and Darwinian thought should be traced to his occupation as a Junior Assistant on the British Museum, and his conception of the load of getting to earn cash outdoors of paintings. utilising broad archival learn, Jordan Kistler demonstrates that faraway from being in basic terms a minor poet, O'Shaughnessy used to be on the vanguard of later Victorian avant-garde poetry. Her analyses of released and unpublished writings, together with correspondence, poetic manuscripts, and medical notebooks, reveal O'Shaughnessy's value to the cultural milieu of the 1870s, fairly his contributions to English aestheticism, his function within the importation of decadence from France, and his special place inside modern debates on technology and literature.
