Byron, a self-portrait; letters and diaries, 1798 to 1824, with hitherto unpublished letters by George Gordon Byron Byron( Book )

1 edition published in 1967 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This two-volume set presents a collection of the personal, written correspondence of Lord Byron (1788-1824). Literary legend has it that Byron left behind the beginnings of an autobiography, but that his publisher destroyed it after his death because he found it too shocking. The author of this book comes as close as anyone can to salvaging what was lost by the alleged actions of one overcautious publisher. Drawing on letters from Byron's pre-Harrow days to those written in the weeks before his death, this work pieces together the extraordinary story of Byron's life as told by himself. As Byron records his thoughts as a schoolboy, man-of-the-world, rake and womanizer, literary sensation, and poet-in-exile, he reveals the rebellious, warm-hearted, disorderly, fun-loving, and neurotic sides to his private character. This 2-volume set conveys how his writing, veering from racy vulgarity to polished eloquence, vividly evokes the worlds in which he lived -- London and Venetian high society, the Swiss and Italian countryside, and the Greek war tents at Missolonghi. It also includes Byron's journals reprinted in full
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]
