This chapter examines the dramatic poem, Manfred. It focuses on specific instances of the character's and the drama's relentless negativity; speculates on how negativity relates to freedom; and, informed by the ideas of Isaiah Berlin and Benjamin Constant, offers some contingent reasons why both Byron and Manfred say ‘no’ as much as they do.

Keywords:   poem, poetry, negativity, drama, freedom, Isaiah Berlin, Benjamin Constant
