    Reviews & endorsements

    '… this Companion serves its manifold purpose of clarifying difficult points about Byron and his work at the same time as it shows their complexity, and it invites the reader to come or to come back to them. The variety of angles and the crisscrossing of approaches provide an enriched perspective on one of the most significant poets of the Romantic era.' Cercles

    'One feels enthusiasm as well as information and interpretation in the Companion. Admirers of Byron's verse as well as newcomers will find that it repays close reading and reference.' Emerald
