Selected Poetry of Lord Byron Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Poet, celebrity, and revolutionary, Lord (George Gordon) Byron was one of the most influential and controversial figures of the first half of the nineteenth century, his distinctive, deeply felt work comprising one of the enduring high points of Romantic literature. From "Manfred," with its evocation of the figure that came to be called the "Byronic hero," to the melancholy "Childe Harold," to the satirical masterpiece "Don Juan" (presented here in judiciously selected form), this Modern Library Paperback Classic includes all of the essential Byron.

Synopsis:

Presents a collection of Lord Byron's poetry, including "Manfred," "Childe Harold," and "Don Juan."

About the Author

Thomas M. Disch is the author of ten books of poetry and more than fifteen novels, including, most recently, Camp Concentration. He lives in upstate New York.
