"Romanticism" - and Byron by Peter Cochran( )

8 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 1,002 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

""Romanticism - and Byron"" is a book in two parts. In the first part, Dr Cochran examines ""Romanticism"" and shows that it is a word meaning anything, and therefore nothing. It is an academic construct created by academics, and has no basis in the writings of the early nineteenth century. Its continued use, argues Dr Cochran, is a modern marketing phenomenon solely. In the second part, Dr Cochran examines the life and work of Byron in the non-""romantic"" context of his contemporaries. He sho
Byron and Hobby-O : Lord Byron's relationship with John Cam Hobhouse by Peter Cochran( )

5 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 979 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Byron and Hobby-O is about the relationship between Byron and his supposed best friend, John Cam Hobhouse. It is the first full-length biographical study of Hobhouse in over fifty years, and is much franker and more intimate than anything preceding. It shows how, while the two men were initially collaborators and rivals, Byron rapidly outstretched Hobhouse in poetry, while Hobhouse, in the longer term, outstretched Byron in politics. It shows how long acquaintance Other the elusive and chame

5 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 926 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Byron and Italy tackles a subject to which no book has been devoted exclusively since the early 1940s.

Byron's poetry by Peter Cochran( )

5 editions published in 2012 in English and Multiple languages and held by 915 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Byron's dubious status as a sex object, and his even more dubious status as a political icon, serves to disguise the fact that he is one of the greatest of all English poets, Other a European reputation second only to Shakespeare. The fact that writers such as Goethe and Pushkin held him in the highest regard ensures that the English continue to despise him, and ignore his verse as much as possible. This book ignores his sexuality, his politics, and his iconography, and concentrates on his poe
The burning of Byron's memoirs : new and unpublished essays and papers by Peter Cochran( )

6 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 868 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Burning of Byron's Memoirs is a collection of new and uncollected essays, and papers given at many conferences over a two-decade period. They cover many aspects of Byron's life and work, including his relationship with his parents, his library, his attitude to Shakespeare, his borrowings from other writers, and his feelings about women and men. Two essays centre on his close friends Hobbouse and Kinnaird. All are informed by first-hand acquaintance with primary texts. The title essay has been hailed as the best-ever documentation of the disgraceful way in which Byron's Memoirs were destroyed within days of his death being announced. For anyone interested in Byron either as a man, a poet, or as a cultural phenomenon, The Burning of Byron's Memoirs is essential reading. --Provided by publisher
Manfred : an edition of Byron's manuscripts and a collection of essays by Peter Cochran( )

5 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 837 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The play Manfred is one of Byron's most famous and influential works. It established him throughout Europe as a bold, blasphemous genius. It inspired music by Tchaikovsky and Schumann, and was admired by, and influenced, Richard Wagner, whose uncle made one of its eighteen German translations. Going back to the primary manuscripts, Peter Cochran has created a new text of Manfred, so that it can at last be read as it left Byron's pen, untouched by professional polishers, too anxious to impose a formal syntax on his fluent and spontaneous style. Cochran has - through a careful study of the origi

Byron's romantic politics : the problem of metahistory by Peter Cochran( )

2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 738 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Byron exists in two incompatible dimensions: as fully-documented history, and as romantic myth. Often the myth predominates, describing him as a passionate lover, a staunch friend, a great romantic poet, a champion of the working man, a loyal author to his publisher, and a fighter for democracy who sacrificed his life for the Freedom of Greece. This book attempts to prove that the verifiable truth often proves him to be the opposite. Using letters from Byronâs family, friends, and associates which have never been transcribed, collected and sequenced before, Peter Cochran argues that the poet was an unscrupulous sponger on his relatives and friends, that he harboured a horror of the working man, had no time for democracy, despised his publisher, and that his motives in going to Greece were deeply mixed. Cochran further argues that almost all editions of Byronâs writing do his style very poor service, constituting, not contributions to knowledge of him, but additions to the obfuscating myth
Byron's religions by Peter Cochran( )

6 editions published in 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 730 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Byron's Religions is the most comprehensive study yet of the poet's deep, diverse and eclectic attitude to religion. The articles, by several well-known and distinguished scholars, cover many of his poems and plays, taking in Anglicanism, Catholicism, Blasphemy, Calvinism, Gnosticism, Islam, and Zoroastrianism. The tentative conclusion is that Byron was never the atheist which the cliché has him to be, but a man whose profound need for a faith clashed always Other an equally profound scepticis

Byron and Bob : Lord Byron's relationship with Robert Southey by Peter Cochran( )

3 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 721 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Byron and Bob is the first book ever to be dedicated to the most important literary relationship in Byron's career - that Other the Poet Laureate, Robert Southey, whom he hated, and to whom he "dedicated" his most important poem, Don Juan. Drawing on much unseen manuscript material, Peter Cochran shows that although Byron's antipathy towards Southey was at first a normal literary distaste, it became, the more he ingested his private image of Southey, a projected self-distrust, a dislike of eve
