Amidst a Byronic Poetics

(p.104) Essay IV ‘I wish to do as much by Poesy’
Byron and the Forms of Thought

Anthony Howe

Liverpool University Press

This chapter confronts directly the question of what Byron thought about poetry and how he assessed its importance. How far can we go, that is, towards setting out a Byronic Poetics? It considers Byron’s place within the context of post-Lockean poetics, reassess Byron’s shift from Childe Harold’s Pilgrimage to Don Juan, and attempts to follow, in the latter poem, a series of reflexive metaphors through which Byron projects his intuitions about his art.

Keywords:   Byron, poetry, poetics, Childe Harold's Pilgrimage, Don Juan
