This chapter examines four juvenile books that Byron published from Newark between 1806 and 1808. These are Fugitive Pieces, Poems on Various Occasions, Hours of Idleness, a Series of Poems, Original and Translated and Poems Original and Translated. The books raise questions about what Byron at first wanted to print in Southwell; about how free he found himself to be, firstly in Southwell and later in the world at large; and about how other pressures, both social and emotional, forced him to censor himself.

Keywords:   juvenile books, Fugitive Pieces, Poems on Various Occasions, Hours of Idleness, Poems Original and Translated
