The present study is distinctive in that the author examines Byron as an artist and self-critic. Based mainly upon Byron's own self-analytical and critical statements as found in his letters and in contemporary memoirs, and written with considerable verve, this volume gives a refreshing picture of Byron as an artist who knew what he was doing and why. Originally published in 1935.
