The making of the poets : Byron and Shelley in their time by Ian Gilmour( Book )

18 editions published between 2002 and 2004 in English and held by 881 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Rebellious, passionate, wildly defiant ... of convention and authority, the fiery George Gordon, Lord Byron, and fearless Percy Bysshe Shelley would come to epitomize both in their lives and in their poetry the spirit of the Romantic Age. Yet neither of them was born to be a revolutionary." "In this dual biography, the first ever to focus exclusively on the lives of Byron and Shelley as well-born youths nurtured by their politically and socially turbulent times, Ian Gilmour illuminates the darkest corners of their formative years. At ideological odds with traditional values even as young boys, Byron at Harrow and Shelley at Eton found themselves first stultified by and then resistant to authority in any institutional guise. Nor did their brief stints at university - Shelley was expelled from Oxford after publishing The Necessity of Atheism and at Cambridge Byron concentrated mostly on gambling and whoring - prove to be more congenial to their mutinous souls. Indeed, they left their respective schools with an abhorrence of inequality, compulsory religion, and persecution that shocked their fellow aristocrats."--BOOK JACKET

The making of the poets : Byron and Shelley in their time by Ian Gilmour( Recording )

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This dual biography ... focus[es] exclusively on the lives of [George Gordon, Lord] Byron and [Percy Bysshe] Shelley as well-born youths nurtured by their politically and socially turbulent times ... [The author] illuminates the darkest corners of their formative years. At ideological odds with traditional values even as young boys, Byron at Harrow and Shelley at Eton found themselves first stultified by and then resistant to authority in any institutional guise ... Their embrace of revolutionary ideals continued to manifest itself as well in their travels abroad, their youthful (and scandalous) love affairs, and their early accomplishments in the literary arena ... If Byron, "quarreled with the temper and accent of his age," as Henry James observed, then Shelley combated it. Why they did, and how they developed the temperament and talent to do it, [the author] explores as he follows the young Byron and Shelley in their parallel pursuits of freedom from the chains of tradition and authority - in poetry, in politics, and in love.-Dust jacket
