The final chapter documents the disintegration of Byron and John Murray’s literary relationship. It describes the publication of Don Juan and exonerates Murray from the charge of being completely opposed to the poem. The chapter focuses on the significance of Murray’s choice to publish the poem without his name, and the consequent effect on Byron, who felt disowned by his publisher of almost ten years.
