Abstract

Abstract:

This article explores the circuits of remediation through which poems and embodied experiences of literary tourism can be productively read through disability studies. I read the work of Sophia Hyatt, who was deaf, and whose devotional poetry to Lord Byron traces a circuit around the poet's former home, Newstead Abbey during the 1820s, and throughout their subsequent remediation. Hyatt's representations of her experience deliberately walking in the footsteps of a famously disabled poet to whom she devoted her own creative powers bears witness to a differently embodied experience of Byron's legacy, through an alternative archival practice of embodied repetition.
