Lord Byron- the European Essays From the International Byron Society
1997 0-7734-8593-7
The essays on the impact and reception of Byron in France, Albania, Central Europe, and Greece extend knowledge of how Byron was admired, plagiarised and imitated; how he was held to be dangerous to morals, ethics and literary standards; how he fomented or retarded emerging nationalisms; how he has been used by Philhellenes and Anti-hellenes alike in the cause of Greece against the Turks, even today. The second part of the volume re-examines Byron's achievement in the light of more subtle readings and post-structuralist insights.
