The poem Mazeppa has a central position in Byron's career and a specific bearing on the themes of liberty and poetic licence. This chapter shows how in Mazeppa different ideas of freedom interact, ally themselves and clash also thanks to the dialogism which permeates the poem's narrative structure, characterisation and imagery.
