The letters of Lord Byron by George Gordon Byron Byron( Book )

1 edition published in 1966 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

In these letters, Byron emerges as a man of the world, satirist, scoffing profligate, poet, and hero: "whom everything becomes, to chide, to laugh, to weep." And this infinite variety of humour makes his letters the most amusing and delightful in the language. Apart, too, from their literary charm, they teem with biographical interest; reflecting, as they do, the writer's varying fortunes through good report and evil; his fickle loves and restless longing; his lofty aspirations and low excesses; his reckless selfishness in sexual relations, that yet went hand in hand with a generous devotion to great causes and lofty aims. --Mathilde Blind[from the library of Elizabeth Ballantyne]
