    “Which piece does he mean? Since last year I have run the Gauntlet; is it the Tarruscelli, the Da Mosti, the Spineda, the Lotti, the Rizzatto, the Eleanora, the Carlotta, the Giulietta, the Alvisi, the Zambieri, the Eleanora de Bezzi (who was the King of Naples’ Gioaschino’s mistress, at least, one of them), the Theresa of Mazzurati, the Glettenheim and her sister, the Luigia and her mother, the Fornaretta, the Santa, the Caligara, the Portiera Vedova, the Bolognese figurante, the Tentora and he “Which piece does he mean?

I have had them all and thrice as many to boot since 1817.”

    I freaking love Byron's poetry. It was this that I spent most of the time reading, and skimmed over most of his letters. and really skimmed through the critiques at the end. The reason that I didn't really pay attention to the critiques is that it enables me to formulate my own opinions about what I have read in a manner that is untainted by the prejudices of others. This way even if I do decide to read them later - it would actually serve an end and mean something. Overall this was the best col I freaking love Byron's poetry.

Overall this was the best collection on the shelves when I decided to buy it, and I haven't regretted buying it. This edition is very well organized... in a manner that allows the reader to follow the chronology of not only the works, but the evolution of Byron's thoughts and relations with family, friends, lovers, etc.

    Lord Byron- you either adore him or dislike him. I am fortunately in the camp of the former. I have owned two copies of this text (one was for graduate school) and used it for several papers I completed on him. It is for me one of the better critical editions of his work in print. You get to see the maturity of his work from schooldays up to his zenith with 'Manfred' and 'Don Juan'. The notes that accompany 'Childe Harold's Pilgrimmage' are more useful as well.

    You know who Byron reminds me of? Jonathan Franzen. Because he is a great writer. And he knows he is a great writer. And his writing reeks of that. Of showing off how awesome he is, so when the readers leave, the last thing on your mind isn't how good the pieces were, but how good the writer was. Total showoff. You know who Byron reminds me of?

    Contains a bunch of useless essays, but butchers the length of Byron's masterpiece. You might not get to read Don Juan in its entirety but, hey, at least you'll get some insightful 21st century feminist analysis of early nineteenth century poetry. That was sarcasm. This edition is garbage. Contains a bunch of useless essays, but butchers the length of Byron's masterpiece.

    Absolutely excellent book. Great if you want to study his life, his work, or both. A beautiful Norton Critical Edition. I am never let down with Norton Critical Editions. They are always amazing, helpful, and a joy to read.

    So,poetry is harder for me to work through. I enjoy it in short bursts, though I also know I probably don't get the depth out of it that a person heavily interested and invested in poetry does. Enjoyed this book and info in it. So,poetry is harder for me to work through.

    Don Juan is the greatest epic poem I've read. Shame on me for not finding this sooner. Don Juan is the greatest epic poem I've read. Shame on me for not finding this sooner.
