Byron Zusammenfassung

Byron: A Literary Life C. Franklin

This is the first biography of Byron to focus on the poet as a professional writer and the circumstances of literary production of his major poems. It shows how Byron interacted and collaborated with other writers; how he tailored his writing to different circles of readers when experimenting with genre, style, and serial publication; how he negotiated with his publishers in establishing the bounds of his challenge to political, sexual and religious conventions. His aristocratic status enabled him to combine the face-saving appearance of insouciant dilettantism with an actual writing practice as dedicatedly professional in many ways as that of novelists like Scott or Dickens.

Byron Bewertungen

'Caroline Franklin's Byron: A Literary Life is another welcome addition to its series, which also makes a strong independent contribution. This is a very fine book, superbly written, and constantly alive to the ways in which recent historicist criticism has recast Byron. Franklin's account loses nothing of the fascination of Byron's extraordinary life, neither does it deny, nor depress, the significance of his individuality. But she is also highly conscious of the ways in which Byron relates to the culture of his time, and the historical significance of his moment, a significance to which he also contributes. This is a book that speaks as powerfully to the novice as it does to the advanced scholar.' - Year's Work in English studies for 2000 'Franklin's lucid, incisive, and economical account offers both a fine introduction to the poet and a useful resource for scholars.' - Peter W. Graham, Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University 'Franklin's book is rich in information about publishing in early nineteenth-century Britain, including everything from book-pricing to the rise of criticism in its modern sense.' 'This is a very fine book, superbly written, and constantly alive to the ways in which recent historicist criticism has recast Byron. Franklin's account loses nothing of the fascination of Byron's extraordinary life, neither does it deny, nor depress, the significance of his individuality. But she is also highly conscious of the ways in which Byron relates to the culture of his time, and the historical significance of his moment, a significance to which he also contributes. This is a book that speaks as powerfully to the novice as it does to the advanced scholar.' 'Byron, like the rest of us did not compose in a vacuum, misanthropic and independent as he liked to appear. As Carolyn Franklin's extremley useful book stresses, his friends, publishers and critics were vital to his sense of identity...Franklin is excellent in her third chapter, on the crisis in English drama at which Byron assisted when on the Management Committee of Drury Lane - theatre being an area on-one works in a social void...Franklin's analysis of the class-war significance of William Pary's book on Missolonghi is alone worth the price of the paperback.' - Peter Cochran, Cambridge, Romanticism
