Reviews

"Richard Lansdown's sharp, lively introduction to Byron 'compresses his extraordinary life to manageable proportions' ... offering concise accounts of key contexts as well as works."
The Keats-Shelley Review
"Lansdown is just the sort of fair- but sharp-minded critic one needs in an introduction like this. He provides a great deal of information, and clearly knows the scholarly field, but does not allow his story to be dragged into a swamp of academic debate."
The Year's Work in English Studies
"... this book achieves much ... Viewing Byron not just as the creator of select canonical works, Lansdown gives us a multi-faceted account of him. He offers a helpful and responsible survey of Byronic terrain, including the nuances and debates surrounding the 'legend-maker' and the extent to which he inspired talented writers, painters, musicians, thinkers, and politicians around the world ... this concise primer offers a comprehensive roadmap for students, beginning Byron scholars, and lecturers. The book thoroughly explains the life of this celebrity writer alongside his major works of poetry and prose."
