This biography (by Byron's own publisher John Murray) reinterprets Byron's life and poetry. MacCarthy casts a fresh eye on Byron's childhood in Scotland, his embattled relations with his mother and his series of relationships with adolescent boys - a subject ignored in previous biographies.

Blackwell North Amer
This is the first biography of Byron to originate from John Murray, Byron's own publisher, since Leslie Marchand's 3-volume biography, published in 1957. It makes a breakthrough in reinterpreting Byron's life and poetry for a new generation, drawing on John Murray's world-famous archive.
