From the Publisher"… this book achieves much … Viewing Byron not just as the creator of select canonical works, Lansdown gives us a multi-faceted account of him. He offers a helpful and responsible survey of Byronic terrain, including the nuances and debates surrounding the 'legend-maker' and the extent to which he inspired talented writers, painters, musicians, thinkers, and politicians around the world … this concise primer offers a comprehensive roadmap for students, beginning Byron scholars, and lecturers. The book thoroughly explains the life of this celebrity writer alongside his major works of poetry and prose."
Review 19 (nbol-19.org)
"Richard Lansdown’s sharp, lively introduction to Byron ‘compresses his extraordinary life to manageable proportions’ … offering concise accounts of key contexts as well as works."
