A selection of sublime poems, with engravings by Simon Brett. Introduced by Jonathan Bate. 'My whole life was a contest,' wrote George Gordon, Lord Byron. Poet, traveller and liberator of Greece, he was the quintessential Romantic figure. Yet he also possessed a refreshingly cynical wit: "Tis pleasant, sure, to see one's name in print;/A book’s a book, although there’s nothing in't." From the satirical to the sublime, this selection of Byron’s poetry celebrates the different facets of his magnetic personality. Quarter-bound in leather with cloth sides. Printed with a design by Simon Brett. Coloured top page edges. Set in Baskerville. 416 pages. 21 wood engravings by Simon Brett. Book size: 11" x 7¼".
