Byron's Letters and Journals

World rights except United Kingdom, Commonwealth & Europe

Marchand’s new edition of Byron’s letters and diaries is a delight to read.The New York Review of Books

Byron was at all times a performer, and his best performance, we have usually agreed, is Don Juan, the most entertaining long poem in English. We may have to think again. Leslie A. Marchand’s new edition of the letters and journals suggests Byron’s prose may be his strongest work. These letters play on our nerves and get under our skin in a contemporary way.—Walter Clemons, Newsweek

[Byron] is one of the most versatile and provocative of our letter writers. More perhaps than any other, he has left us a collection of writings that constitute a brilliant and incisive portrait of their author.The Times Literary Supplement
