My Silver Planet (taking its name from John Keats) contends that the matter of elite poetry’s relation to pop culture bears the indelible mark of its turbulent incorporation of vernacular poetry—a legacy formed through nostalgia, contempt, and fraudulence. Daniel Tiffany reactivates and essentially redefines the concept that of kitsch, releasing it from modernist misapprehension and mock, by means of tracing its starting place to poetry’s alienation from the emergent classification of literature. He excavates the forgotten heritage of poetry’s relation to kitsch, starting with the exuberant revival of archaic (and frequently spurious) ballads in Britain within the early eighteenth century. In those debatable occasions of poetic imposture, Tiffany identifies a submerged pact—in competition to the bourgeois values of literature—between elite and vernacular poetries.

He is going directly to hint the family tree of kitsch in texts starting from nursery rhymes and poetic melodrama to the lyric commodities of Baudelaire. He scrutinizes the fascist "paradise" inscribed in Ezra Pound’s Cantos, in addition to the avant-garde poetry of the hot York institution and its debt to pop and "plastic" artwork. through exposing and elaborating the old poetics of kitsch, My Silver Planet transforms our experience of kitsch as a class of fabric culture.
