Byron's poetry and prose in an informative, well-selected student edition 10 mars 2015
Par Michael Birman - Publié sur
Format: Broché
Although Byron is considered to be one of the Romantic poets, his sensibility, his humor and his cynicism are profoundly modern in outlook. All of the other significant English poets of the era have an earnestness and seriousness of purpose that are traits Byron would be horrified to be "accused" of possessing. He is the template for a rebel without a specific cause: unless it is a genuine hatred for cant and prudery. His humor is sharp and shocking, much of it aimed at himself and his travails as a man gifted with the ability to attract controversy. His rumored relationship with his half-sister Augusta Leigh caused such revulsion that he was forced into exile from England, essentially making him a man without a country.

As might be expected, this was grist for Byron's mill and his poetry, which in his early masterpiece Childe Harold's Pilgrimage is filled with an uncharacteristically serious bitterness against political malfeasance and social injustice. As his troubles mount, his sense of the absurd saves him and he becomes more reserved in his poetic persona but also mordantly satirical. Byron's hatred for social injustice is now, if anything, even stronger, but he has chosen new poetic weapons to combat it, using a richly ironic tone that recognizes the quixotic nature of such a struggle. Byron finds his mature poetic voice in the mock-heroic ottava rima (consisting of eight iambic lines per stanza rhyming a-b-a-b-a-b-c-c) of Don Juan, which is an indisputable comic masterpiece. Reading a few cantos of this lengthy epic can quickly draw you into Byron's world of human absurdity, pretentiousness and ribaldry, making it one of poetry's most satisfying comic utterances. There is nothing quite like it in English verse. Byron was an ardent admirer of the great satiric writers Jonathan Swift and Alexander Pope and felt a kinship to their work which was closer than to any of his contemporaries except, perhaps, for Shelley, whom he viewed as a kindred revolutionary spirit.

This Norton Critical Edition contains all of Byron's significant shorter poetry as well as a hefty selection from Don Juan. Because it is geared towards undergraduate students, the classic and modern critical examinations of Byron are extensive and far-reaching in their focus. The contextual information is impressive, the annotations are quite good and the headnotes provide a solid introduction to each of the poems. Very impressive is the way Byron's most important poems are sandwiched by contemporary correspondence that provides them with an historical context that is as good as any I've seen. This Norton Critical Edition is a superb introduction to the poet that Lady Caroline Lamb famously described as being "mad, bad and dangerous to know". Byron was a complex man who died in his mid-thirties, fighting in an appropriately quixotic struggle for the freedom of an almost mythic Greece, breathing his last in the rain and mud of Missolonghi, laying on the coast near the foothills of the western mountains. There was much depth to the man, neither mad nor bad but gifted with a genius for seeing the comedy and absurdity of human folly and blessed with the ability to express himself with uncommon wit.

I love Norton Critical Editions. This is exactly what I was looking for. It's great for reading his works. It's also great if you want to study his life, and it's perfect if you want to write an essay and need outside sources that are credible. Wonderful edition. I'm very happy with it. So happy, in fact, that I also bought the Norton Critical Edition of Percy Shelley's Poetry and Prose.

This book has much, much more in it than I could have imagined and sinking my teeth into it is a "feel good" situation. I highly recommend this book.
