Description de l'ouvrage

25 avril 2013
Roderick Beaton re-examines Lord Byron's life and writing through the long trajectory of his relationship with Greece. Beginning with the poet's youthful travels in 1809–1811, Byron's War traces his years of fame in London and self-imposed exile in Italy, that culminated in the decision to devote himself to the cause of Greek independence. Then comes Byron's dramatic self-transformation, while in Cephalonia, from Romantic rebel to 'new statesman', subordinating himself for the first time to a defined, political cause, in order to begin laying the foundations, during his 'hundred days' at Missolonghi, for a new kind of polity in Europe – that of the nation-state as we know it today. Byron's War draws extensively on Greek historical sources and other unpublished documents to tell an individual story that also offers a new understanding of the significance that Greece had for Byron, and of Byron's contribution to the origin of the present-day Greek state.

Descriptions du produit

Revue de presse

'Byron's War is a superb portrait of a complex personality. Drawing upon new archival research into the bitter civil wars between rival revolutionary factions, Beaton has constructed a gripping narrative of Byron's self-transformation from Philhellene to a pragmatic and courageous politicker. Far from playing at soldiers or sentimentalising the klephts, Byron was a moderniser and internationalist who saw the Greek revolution as a crucible whose future constitution might inspire the transformation of Europe.' Caroline Franklin, Swansea University

'There is nothing else like this book, for Beaton stands alone in his knowledge not just of the English and Greek sources, but also the English and Greek contemporary context. Byron's War changes our understanding of what Byron was trying to do in Greece, and will be the starting point for all subsequent discussions of the topic.' David Roessel, The Richard Stockton College of New Jersey

'This is rigorous, scrupulous, academic history.' The Spectator

'[A] great achievement …' The Times Higher Education Supplement

'This new work about Byron and his contribution to the Greek insurgency, by Roderick Beaton, a professor at King's College London, is the first to draw deeply on Greek as well as British sources. As a biographer of George Seferis, the Greek poet and Nobel Laureate, Mr Beaton is well placed to plunge into Athenian historiographical debates and the broader Hellenic search for self-understanding … a formidable array of detail …' The Economist

'Indispensable …' Literary Review

'Military historians interested in Byron will benefit greatly from Beaton's book.' Military History

'A very nearly perfect scholarly publication, the sort of work that simultaneously makes other critics glad it finally exists and angry that they didn't write it themselves … Throughout [Beaton] is a marvellous writer, gripping and evocative while also scrupulously scholarly, and in this way, too, his book is a model particularly for academic writers.' The Times Literary Supplement

Thorough and well-documented, this book throws new light on the subject. It is especially good to have a book on this part of Byron's life by someone who knows the Greek world well. Beaton is also very interesting on the relationship between Byron and Shelley.
