Byron: a portrait by Leslie A Marchand( Book )

52 editions published between 1900 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 1,405 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The author writes "It may be presumptuous to call this biography 'A Portrait' of Bryon, but the persumption is lessened by the fact that the lines of the portrait are drawn from his own revelations in verse and prose, while the natural colours are filled in from ample recollections by contemporaries. What i have tried to do is to distil the essential Bryon from the mass of biographical material now available. I have given what explanation and interpretation seemed necessary, but have tried not to obtrude my 'philosophy of Byron' on the reader. I have seen little reason to paraphase Bryon when i could quote him. The trenchancy of his letters can seldom be bettered in mordern prose."

Selected poetry of Lord Byron by George Gordon Byron Byron( Book )

23 editions published between 1812 and 2002 in English and held by 482 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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

What comes uppermost. Byron's letters and journals by George Gordon Byron Byron( Book )

10 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 269 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Leslie A. Marchand's great edition of Byron's letters and journals, published between 1973 and 1981, included every letter then available, all of them unbowdlerized and many published for the first time. Richard Holmes called it 'a beautifully produced edition ... which represent[s] in raciness, self-portraiture, scandal, intelligence and sheer devilish charm one of the great flowerings of English Romantic prose'. Ifor Evans described it as 'one of the great publishing ventures of our time'." "Since 1981, further letters have come to light and they are now published here. Many are newly discovered, some have been partially published but are here made complete from manuscripts, a few have been published in inaccessible periodicals. All of them have biographical significance and many are of great interest, touching as they do on such diverse aspects of Byron's life as his journey to Greece, the infatuation of Lady Falkland (who believed he had written the Thyrza poems to her), and his liaison with Lady Caroline Lamb. The appearance of this volume brings up to date the publication of all the known letters of Byron. In contrast to the Prothero edition, which included 1,198, Leslie Marchand prints some 3,000, more than 80 per cent of them transcribed in full from the original manuscripts."--Jacket
