Mad, bad, and dangerous to know. The Byron of history and the Byron of myth; it is impossible for the modern reader to separate the two. The original ‘byronic hero,’ Lord Byron glides us through sorrow, loss, laughter, passion, humanity. A good collection to read at various points in life, to stop and reflect on the larger picture. His wit knows no bounds. ( )

The first used book I ever bought. I got it from BookFinders and paid $35.00 for it (an enormous sum to me then). I have read it over and over again. A wonderful selection of Byron's poetry. ( )

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.
