Since its establishment in 1753, The British Museum has become one of the iconic museums of the world. It is the home of countless treasures of the ancient world, including the Elgin Marbles, the Rosetta Stone, and the Assyrian Lamassu. Due to the large shadow it casts, the British Museum appears in unexpected places, including literature. Various authors and poets have interacted with the British Museum in their writing, both upholding and reworking its different meanings and processes.
