Description

Byron (1788-1824) was one of the most acclaimed writers of his day, and today he remains one of the most widely read of the Romantic poets. The most European of the English writers of his day, Byron was a man of the world, actively engaged in the events of the time, a fact which is discernible in his verse. He also displays a mastery of a sweeping range of topics, subjects and forms, which reveal his interest in poetic tradition. This new selection of his poetry, prepared by the editor of his "Complete Poetical Works", includes excerpts from all of Byron's important works: "Childe Harolde's Pilgrimage", "The Corsair", "Manfred", "Beppo" and "Don Juan". In addition, many shorter lyrics are included.show more
