Summary

This Norton Critical Edition of Byron's Poetry and Prose is the most comprehensive and accessible student edition available, annotated to meet the needs of students, instructors, and the general reader. The extensive selection of Byron's works includes the complete texts of Childe Harold's Pilgrimage, The Giaour, The Prisoner of Chillon, Manfred, Beppo, and The Vision of Judgment, and over half of Don Juan (with complete cantos I, III, V, XI, XIII, and XVII), along with more than eighty of Byron's incomparably witty letters and journal entries. The arrangement, according to the four clearly defined periods of Byron's life, highlights the significant biographical dimension of his poetry, allowing readers to trace Byron's poetic development in the context of his extraordinary fame (and notoriety) in England and exile in Switzerland, Italy, and Greece. Supporting materials include Byron's own numerous notes, biographical headnotes for each period, editorial annotations, a biographical register, a chronology of Byron's life and work, a selected bibliography, and an index of poem titles and first lines.
