Byron's Letters and Journals, Volume VII: ‘Between two worlds,’ 1820

George Gordon Byron

Edited by Leslie A. Marchand

ISBN 9780674089471

Publication date: 01/01/1978

Byron’s letters 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. Readers and reviewers have responded with great enthusiasm to Leslie Marchand's new unexpurgated edition.

Praise

  • Byron’s sinewy, funny, electrifying letters are emergency bulletins from a man operating, more often than not, on the extreme edge of despair and disgrace… He is fiercely alive.
