Byron: a portrait by Leslie A Marchand( Book )

52 editions published between 1970 and 1993 in 3 languages and held by 1,410 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."
Lord Byron : selected letters and journals by George Gordon Byron Byron( Book )

15 editions published between 1982 and 1988 in English and held by 1,095 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Byron was a superb letter-writer: almost all his letters, whatever the subject or whoever the recipient, are enlivened by his wit, his irony, his honesty, and the sharpness of his observation of people. They provide a vivid self-portrait of the man who, of all his contemporaries, seems to express attitudes and feelings most in tune with the twentieth century. In addition, they offer a mirror of his own time. This first collected edition of all Byron's known letters supersedes Prothero's incomplete edition at the turn of the century. It includes a considerable number of hitherto unpublished letters and the complete text of many that were bowdlerized by former editors for a variety of reasons. Prothero's edition included 1,198 letters. This edition will have more than 3,000, over 80 percent of them transcribed entirely from the original manuscripts. Byron's epistolary saga continues con brio in this volume. At the start of 1818 he sends off the last canto of Childe Harold and abandons himself to the debaucheries of the Carnival in Venice. At the close of 1819 he resolves to return to England but instead follows Teresa Guiccioli to Ravenna. In the meantime he writes three long poems and two cantos of Don Juan, whose bowdlerization he violently protests; he breaks off with Marianna Segati, copes with his amorous "tigress" Margarita Cogni, then falls passionately in love with the young Countess Guiccioli; he thinks seriously of emigrating to South America; he takes custody of his little daughter Allegra and becomes increasingly fond of the child. The Shelleys visit him, as does Thomas Moore, to whom he entrusts his memoirs (burned after his death). The letters to friends are a marvelous outpouring of funny anecdotes, practical talk, discussions of his poems, statements of his beliefs. The love letters are in a class by themselves

The Athenaeum : a mirror of Victorian culture by Leslie A Marchand( Book )

25 editions published between 1941 and 2018 in English and held by 541 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study of a leading 19th-century Journal of English and Foreign Literature, Science, and Fine Arts offers an excellent approach to average intelligent Victorian thought.

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

25 editions published between 1812 and 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 502 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 270 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
