Synopsis: The past century has produced an abundance of information confirming George Gordon Byron (1788-1824) as a renegade English nobleman and an accomplished poet, says Barton (literature and composition, Regional U. in the Western Pacific), but the conventional view is both incomplete and myopic. He argues that the image of him as propelled through life by purely secular motivations could only have been constructed by neglecting the religious influence in his life and poetry. In addition to his well known strong interest in political and social reform both in England and in Mediterranean Europe, he finds elements in his life and poetry that reveal a peculiar and at times macabre fascination with his spiritual identity. The text is double spaced. Annotation (c) Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
