Lord Byron's life in Italy by Teresa Guiccioli( Book )
11 editions published between 1996 and 2005 in English and held by 234 libraries worldwide
"Lord Byron's Life in Italy is an English translation of Vie de Lord Byron en Italie by Byron's Italian love Teresa Guiccioli. The manuscript has lain in Ravenna since the early 1950s and has never been published, or even read, except by a small number of scholars. Teresa Guiccioli was the poet's last mistress and his liaison with her was of longer duration than any other. They first became intimate in April 1819, and their relationship lasted until he left Italy for Greece in July 1823. Persecuted by the Austrian and papal authorities because of their friendship with such a dangerous man, Teresa's family had to move from Ravenna to Pisa and finally to Genoa. Teresa knew Byron better than any other person, and her fresh and original account of his life has been unknown for too long." "This translation, with an elaborate introduction, is the work of two experienced Byron scholars and fills a long-scknowledged gap in studies of Byron."--BOOK JACKET

Byron's romantic politics : the problem of metahistory by Peter Cochran( Book )
8 editions published in 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 76 libraries worldwide
Byron exists in two incompatible dimensions: as fully-documented history, and as romantic myth. Often the myth predominates, describing him as a passionate lover, a staunch friend, a great romantic poet, a champion of the working man, a loyal author to his publisher, and a fighter for democracy who sacrificed his life for the Freedom of Greece. This book attempts to prove that the verifiable truth often proves him to be the opposite. Using letters from Byronâs family, friends, and associates which have never been transcribed, collected and sequenced before, Peter Cochran argues that the poet was an unscrupulous sponger on his relatives and friends, that he harboured a horror of the working man, had no time for democracy, despised his publisher, and that his motives in going to Greece were deeply mixed. Cochran further argues that almost all editions of Byronâs writing do his style very poor service, constituting, not contributions to knowledge of him, but additions to the obfuscating myth
"Romanticism" - and Byron by Peter Cochran( Book )
10 editions published in 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 72 libraries worldwide
""Romanticism - and Byron"" is a book in two parts. In the first part, Dr Cochran examines ""Romanticism"" and shows that it is a word meaning anything, and therefore nothing. It is an academic construct created by academics, and has no basis in the writings of the early nineteenth century. Its continued use, argues Dr Cochran, is a modern marketing phenomenon solely. In the second part, Dr Cochran examines the life and work of Byron in the non-""romantic"" context of his contemporaries. He sho

8 editions published in 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 69 libraries worldwide
Byron and Bob is the first book ever to be dedicated to the most important literary relationship in Byron's career - that Other the Poet Laureate, Robert Southey, whom he hated, and to whom he "dedicated" his most important poem, Don Juan.

Manfred : an edition of Byron's manuscripts and a collection of essays by Peter Cochran( Book )
5 editions published between 1900 and 2015 in English and held by 42 libraries worldwide
The play Manfred is one of Byron's most famous and influential works. It established him throughout Europe as a bold, blasphemous genius. It inspired music by Tchaikovsky and Schumann, and was admired by, and influenced, Richard Wagner, whose uncle made one of its eighteen German translations. Going back to the primary manuscripts, Peter Cochran has created a new text of Manfred, so that it can at last be read as it left Byron's pen, untouched by professional polishers, too anxious to impose a formal syntax on his fluent and spontaneous style. Cochran has - through a careful study of the origi
