Byron in Exile1

(p.143) Chapter Six John Murray and ‘the Demon of Silence’
Byron and John Murray

Mary O’Connell

Liverpool University Press

This chapter explores the impact of Byron’s exile on his professional and personal relationship with John Murray. Murray was a notoriously indolent correspondent and his failure to write regularly to Byron caused the poet much anxiety. The chapter examines the third canto of Childe Harold as a meditation on fame and literary reputation, and highlights the significance of Byron’s meeting with Percy Bysshe Shelley.

Keywords:   John Murray, Byron and Shelley, Childe Harold, Byron’s exile, literary reputation
