The Western Lit Survival Kit (Part B): Dryden & Pepys to Twain & Crane

To quote from the source book: "Romantic poets were above mundane concerns like making money. This was lucky, since no one bought their poetry....The fact that they were later recognised as geniuses has been an unhealthy example to slackers for more than a hundred years."
This is the 2nd instalment of a challenge derived from "The Western Lit Survival Kit: An Irreverent Guide to the Classics, from Homer to Faulkner" (Sandra Newman, 2012). For a more detailed description of the challenge follow the link to the 1st part.
