Poet, celebrity, and revolutionary, Lord (George Gordon) Byron was one of the most influential and controversial figures of the first half of the nineteenth century, his distinctive, deeply felt work comprising one of the enduring high points of Romantic literature. From Manfred, with its evocation of the figure that came to be called the Byronic hero, to the melancholy Childe Harold, to the satirical masterpiece Don Juan (presented here in judiciously selected form), this Modern Library Paperback Classic includes all of the essential Byron.
