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.

[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
