James Cawthorn and English Bards and Scotch Reviewers, John Murray and Childe Harold’s Pilgrimage

(p.65) Chapter Three Janus-Faced
Byron and John Murray

Mary O’Connell

Liverpool University Press

This chapter provides a comprehensive account of how Byron became one of John Murray’s authors. It describes the crucial role played by Byron’s distant relation and self-appointed literary agent Robert Charles Dallas, and demonstrates the difficulty Byron faced in choosing whether to persist with the publication of satirical works with James Cawthorn, or to switch publishers and move to John Murray.
