(p.101) Chapter Five ‘I have written too much’1
Byron and John Murray

Mary O’Connell

Liverpool University Press

This chapter describes the relationship between Byron and John Murray during Byron’s ‘years of fame’, years characterised by massive commercial success and popularity. Murray acquired fashionable new premises in Albemarle Street and Byron, while writing prolifically, began to seriously worry that he was writing too much. The chapter discusses the unusual friendship between Murray and Lady Caroline Lamb and examines contemporary reviews which chastised Byron for his rapidity of composition. The chapter focuses specifically on Byron’s ‘Eastern Tales’, with special attention paid to The Giaour.

Keywords:   Byron, John Murray, The Giaour, Albemarle Street, popularity, fame, Caroline Lamb, Eastern Tales
