Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Richly varied in mood and content, this collection captures the essence of Byrons great poetic achievement. Among the 31 selections: convivial song-like poems, love poems, travel poems, humorous and satiric poems. Included are shorter works such as the famous "She Walks in Beauty," "Stanzas to Augusta" and "So Well Go No More a Roving," as well as longer works: "The Prisoner of Chillon," "Beppo," and "The Vision of Judgment," all unabridged. Also here are lyrics excerpted from Don Juan, Childe Harolds Pilgrimage and the play Manfred. Explanatory footnotes.

Synopsis:

Features 31 poems, including "She Walks in Beauty," "The Prisoner of Chillon," "The Vision of Judgment," many more, plus excerpts from Don Juan, Childe Harold's Pilgrimage and Manfred. Explanatory footnotes.

Synopsis:

George Gordon Byron was born on 22 January 1788 and he inherited the barony in 1798. He went to school in Dulwich, and then in 1801 to Harrow. In 1805 he went up to Trinity College, Cambridge, later gaining a reputation in London for his startling good looks and extravagant behaviour. His first collection of poems, Hours of Idleness (1807), was not well received, but with the publication of the first two cantos of Childe Harold's Pilgrimage (1812) he became famous overnight and increased this fame with a series of wildly popular 'Eastern Tales'. In 1815 he married the heiress Annabella Milbanke, but they were separated after a year. Byron shocked society by the rumoured relationship with his half-sister, Augusta, and in 1816 he left England for ever. He eventually settled in Italy, where he lived for some time with Teresa, Contessa Guiccioli. He supported Italian revolutionary movements and in 1823 he left for Greece to fight in its struggle for independence, but he contracted a fever and died at Missolonghi in 1824. Byron's contemporary popularity was based first on Childe Harold and the 'Tales', and then on Don Juan (1819-24), his most sophisticated and accomplished writing. He was one of the strongest exemplars of the Romantic movement, and the Byronic hero was a prototype widely imitated in European and American literature.
