      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Lord Byron, is a unique writer of poetry 1) because he was at such a young age when he wrote his poems and 2) because most of his poems were based on his depraved nature. In his poems Lord Byron shows us his views on what exactly certain emotions are to him or what people that use them are really using them for. Lord Byron's poems are by far my most favourite poems, I constantly find myself reading over and over again his poetry. The rhythm of his poetry is amazing, unbelievable even, that he can find so many words that rhyme and make sense at the same time. My utmost favourite poem by Lord Byron must be 'The Tear'. In this he describes the ways in which someone can be made to cry and what actually provokes tears. If you like poetry and want my advice, then you should definately check out Lord Byron because you won't be dissapointed.

  • Product Details

    This authoritative edition was originally published in the acclaimed Oxford Authors series under the general editorship of Frank Kermode. It brings together a unique combination of Byron's poetry and prose - all the major poems, complemented by important letters, journals, and conversations - to give the essence of his work and thinking. Byron is regarded today as the ultimate Romantic, whose name has entered the language to describe a man of brooding passion. Although his private life shocked his contemporaries his poetry was immensely popular and influential, especially in Europe. This comprehensive edition includes the complete texts of his two poetic masterpieces Childe Harold's Pilgrimage and Don Juan, as well as the dramatic poems Manfred and Cain. There are many other shorter poems and part of the satire English Bards and Scotch Reviewers. In addition there is a selection from Byron's inimitable letters, extracts from his journals and conversations, as well as more formal writings.
