Contends that Poe's use of Byron as antagonist was an example of the fragmentation of character -- using reflections of Byron as seen by himself, by Poe, by his adulators and defamers -- for literary effect. Besides "William Wilson," also discusses "The Fall of the House of Usher," "Metzengerstein," and others.
