Byron by Caroline Franklin

Book Description

Lord Byron (1788-1824) was a poet and satirist, as famous in his time for his love affairs and questionable morals as he was for his poetry. Looking beyond the scandal, Byron leaves us a body of work that proved crucial to the development of English poetry and provides a fascinating counterpoint to other writings of the Romantic period. This guide to Byron's sometimes daunting, often extraordinary work offers: * an accessible introduction to the contexts and many interpretations of Byron's texts, from publication to the present * an introduction to key critical texts and perspectives on Byron's life and work, situated in a broader critical history * cross-references between sections of the guide, in order to suggest links between texts, contexts and criticism * suggestions for further reading. Part of the Routledge Guides to Literature series, this volume is essential reading for all those beginning detailed study of Byron and seeking not only a guide to his works but also a way through the wealth of contextual and critical material that surrounds them.

Longman Anthology of Gothic Verse by Caroline Franklin Longman Anthology of Gothic Verse, Paperback (August 2010)

Gothic literature has never been as popular as it is today, both in academia (as a dark, seductive extension of Romanticism) and the general market (as a starting point for all that we call fantasy). This anthology is specifically devoted to Gothic poetry.

Byron's Heroines by Caroline Franklin Byron's Heroines, Hardback (September 1992)

This is the first feminist critique of Lord Byron's depiction of women. The heroines of his narrative and dramatic verse are considered in the light of the early 19th century debate on the role of woman in society and are compared with the heroines of Byron's contemporaries.
