    My first contact with the most known satanical Romantic poet hasn t disappointed Lord Byron emerges in his poems as the immensely popular hero, defiant, melancholic, haunted by secret guilt, the eternal scandalous irreverent freethinker We are the fools of Time and Terror DaysSteal on us, and steal from us yet we live,Loathing our life, and dreading still to die ManfredAlthough this selection doesn t include his famous Don Juan , I have found plenty of passion and strong emotion in his stanzas, specially in Cain a Mystery , where he keeps defying not only religious convention, giving Lucifer a clergyman voice Speaking about Lucifer CAIN He is God.ADAH How know st thou CAIN He speaks like A God.ADAH So did the Serpent, and it lied.but also unashamedly proclaiming his widely known extravagant views on relationships in, for example, making ADAH not only CAIN s sister but also his wife and lover.Writer of metaphysical poems, like his famous Manfred, Byron rejects the Wordsworthian belief in the benevolence of Nature and insists on the independence and self sufficiency of the human mind, which doesn t bow to any supernatural authority I have not been thy dupe nor am thy prey,But was my own destroyer, and will beMy own hereafter Back, ye baffled fiends The hand of death is on me but not yours At the same time though, I find a kind of paradox in Byron s style and the content of his poems His almost neoclassical order and formal discipline collide with his exulting ideas impregnated with vigorous thoughts of liberty and satirical criticism TyrannyIs far the worst of treasons Dost thou deemNone rebels except subjects The prince whoNeglects or violates his trust is A brigand than the robber chief. The Two FoscariBut one thing in common in all his poems is this new figure of the Gothic Hero Villain full of pride, courage, and even noble virtues such as honor and altruism but also moody, remorseful, alienated and oppressed creatures, left to dwell in loneliness and incomprehension Difficult to tell whether Byron was absorbed into his own created characters or he projected his myriad experiences through them.In any case, I find great appeal in this flawed new anti hero, sensing original motivations behind Byron s works Lacking the inhibitions of his contemporaries, he created verse that is exuberant, spontaneous, digressive and lucid, a celebration of an unadorned reality One can t help but admire him With all his debauchery and flaws.

    You either love Byron or you hate him And it should probably come as no surprise that I absolutely adore him The original goth emo boy Man did it with style, though His life is fascinating, ridiculous, over the top Watching his journey through poetry is just amazing, watching how throughly his sorrows and his fantasy life consumes him Byron s fantasies are beautifully put down through his poetry It s a shame, but not a surprise, that those fantasies are what ultimately killed him.

    I only read this because of the sexy cover.Actually, that is half true.Lord Byron is a pretty well known poet Most people have heard his name and kind of know about his colorful life He was a lover of women and men and animals not sexually LOL He was involved in politics and was a world traveler He was in very good shape and known for his aesthetics He was acquaintances with several other famous authors at the time most famously Percy Bysshe Shelley His daughter, Ada Lovelace, even became an important figure in computer science, although she was forbidden to see him during her lifetime It seems though, not many have read his poetry.I remember mentioning reading him before and I think I turned some people off Lord Byron I feel like has a bad boy reputation You can kind of see why with the women he slept with and one of his wives left him, for a silly reason if you ask me During his time, poets weren t that well respected Hence why Ada s mother left him and told Ada to become a scientist instead Fast forward today and I can kind of see this hasn t changed much, but it is better My point is, Byron, I feel, kind of gets misinterpreted these days.I loved his poetry and his writing I can t really tell you which poem of his I liked best, but there are many lines I ended up loving I like how he was into aesthetics, not only with his own body image, but with his words and descriptions as well I kind of wish I was taught of his works in college I possibly read one poem of his in college, but if I did I have no memory of reading him before except that She walks in beauty poem that I read in the Graphic Cannon series.As much as I loved Byron, there is a little annoyance I had with him One of them is footnotes I liked that Penguin included his own footnotes and preferences and whatnot, but talk about an early David Foster Wallace Some of the footnotes are a page length themselves Honestly, I skipped some of them because they didn t help me understand the poems Also, not really a complaint, but Byron sure knows howto write some long poems These aren t read before bed poems With some, you read one poem for the day and need a break before you start the next There are a few plays in this as well I think it might be best to save Don Juan for another day.Also, I still am fascinated with the story of Byron and his pet bear he brought to college I feel like that needs to be a children s book Actually, I d love to find a well written biography of Byron Damn his family for burning his memoirs

    Lord Byron was, until the age of biological engineering, pretty much the zenith of human development Lord knows what he could have done with 80mg per diem sustained release Adderall dextro amphetamine salts or, like, elephant pituitary extracts, or hell even some Centrum and antibiotics instead of therapeutic bleeding, but it s exciting to read him or about him and ponder what ll happen when we can start giving people three hearts each, like octopodes.

    Well, so far I ve learned that skulls make excellent goblets for wine Better than the thoughts it contained in life Byron may have romanticized about women, but he also hid men in there as well.I find a lot of it hard to read but I end up reading this in a really broken fashion I work at a call center where I can t really enjoy it between calls, then at home I m always gardening, eating, cooking, shopping, or facebooking so I read a poem a day at the most.Where I was going with that is that I may not be the most credible source to write a review but I know I went into it expecting a certain something and I haven t fully gotten that yet It s been hinted at that he s going where I want him to but he never quite gets there I may just be looking for Edgar Alan Poe in the wrong place if you know what I mean I did begin with the Cantos and they were loooong, but I made it through anyway, just in case, to no avail Now, I have made it to shorter poems Only a few have struck my fancy so far I m hoping there s a lot than a few that will really get me, I m only halfway through so far.

    My review of Childe Harold is here My reivew of Don Juan is here I have to admit that Byron took me a really, really long time to finish I am not sure if I can put my finger on why that is, but he s taken much longer to read than other poets, even others from his very own time period Long story short, I find his poetry to be a little harder to follow to compare to Keats, who is my favorite poet, I can say this Keats has a flow to his poetry that I can t find in Byron s poetry, and while I can t say that I don t enjoy Byron, I don t enjoy it as much as Keats I am afraid that I might be a bit fixated on this fact than I should be, but hey, that s the way it isI thoroughly enjoy the longer works of Byron, excluding the plays and early satires Childe Harold s Pilgrimage is a wonderful work, and probably the most masterful work that Byron ever put out there The regret that I have is that there s something in that work that made me think Oh, this must mean that his other poems are going to be like this Great I think I ran into a little fallacy there like I mentioned before, the satires and plays that take up so much space in this collection tend to be a bit boring that I d like them to be, chock full of allusions that seem to be a go to for many poets as well as talking about many issues that I cannot relate to myself I regret not finding enjoyment in reading this poetry, but I cannot change what I know to be true Byron fell a bit flat for me, perhaps warranting a revisit and reevaluation in the future.

    It seems appropriate to briefly meditate upon the poetry of Lord Byron on any date including this, his birth date In particular I turn to his poem On this Day I complete my Thirty Sixth Year This poem appeals to me neither for the greatness of its lines nor the acuity of its poetic strains, but for the beauty and sadness of its meditative thought The opening stanza, for example Tis time this heart should be unmoved,Since others it hath ceased to move Yet, though I cannot be beloved,Still let me love Byron s passion for his young Greek page, however unrequited, reminds me of similar feelings shared by so many of us in the ensuing years He goes on to recount the fear of aging and the pain of his longing among other feelings I wonder if he would have traded a few years of such feelings for the few months that remained in his brief life
