Byron (Routledge Guides to Literature) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

Lord Byron (1788-1824) was a poet and satirist, as famous in his time for his love affairs and questionable morals as he was for his poetry. 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, often extraordinary work offers:
  • an accessible introduction to the contexts and 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.

Part of the Routledge Guides to Literature series, this volume is essential reading for all those beginning detailed study of Byron and seeking not only a guide to his works but also a way through the wealth of contextual and critical material that surrounds them.
