Byron and Italy Hardback
Edited by Dr. Alan Rawes, Diego Saglia
Byron in Italy - Venetian debauchery, Roman sight-seeing, revolution, horse-riding and swimming, sword-brandishing and pistol-shooting, the poet's 'last attachment' - forms part of the fabric of Romantic mythology.
Yet Byron's time in Italy was crucial to his development as a writer, to Italy's sense of itself as a nation, to Europe's perceptions of national identity and to the evolution of Romanticism across Europe.
In this volume, Byron scholars from Britain, Europe and beyond re-assess the topic of 'Byron and Italy' in all its richness and complexity.
They consider Byron's relationship to Italian literature, people, geography, art, religion and politics, and discuss his navigations between British and Italian identities. -- .
