Byronby Caroline Franklin
Lord Byron (1788-1824) was as famous in his time for his love affairs and revolutionary politics as he was for his trail-blazing Romantic and satiric poetry, which sold countless copies across Europe. Looking beyond the scandal, Byron leaves us a body of work that proved crucial to the development of English poetry and provides a fascinating counterpoint to other writings of the Romantic period.
This guide to Byron's sometimes daunting, always extraordinary work offers: an accessible introduction to the many interpretations of Byron's texts, from publication to the present, an introduction to key critical texts and perspectives on Byron's life and work, situated in a broader critical history, cross-references between sections of the guide, in order to suggest links between texts, contexts and criticism, suggestions for further reading.
