N.B.: In Lyric Shame (Harvard University Press, 2014), Gillian White shames those who question the jargon of authenticity in lyric poetry. White claims that active skepticism toward Romantic Ideology is a form of shaming. White fights this phantom shame with her critical shaming. See Lytle Shaw, “Framing the Lyric” in American Literary History, 2016.
