About the Author

English poet and dramatist George Gordon, Lord Byron was born January 22, 1788, in London. The boy was sent to school in Aberdeen, Scotland, until the age of ten, then to Harrow, and eventually to Cambridge, where he remained form 1805 to 1808. A congenital lameness rankled in the spirit of a mostrar mais high-spirited Byron. As a result, he tried to excel in every thing he did. It was during his Cambridge days that Byron's first poems were published, the Hours of Idleness (1807). The poems were criticized unfavorably. Soon after Byron took the grand tour of the Continent and returned to tell of it in the first two cantos of Childe Harold (1812). Instantly entertained by the descriptions of Spain, Portugal, Albania, and Greece in the first publication, and later travels in Belgium, Germany, Switzerland, and Italy, the public savored Byron's passionate, saucy, and brilliant writing. Byron published the last of Childe Harold, Canto IV, in 1818. The work created and established Byron's immense popularity, his reputation as a poet and his public persona as a brilliant but moody romantic hero, of which he could never rid himself. Some of Byron's lasting works include The Corsair, Lara, Hebrew Melodies, She Walks In Beauty, and the drama Manfred. In 1819 he published the first canto of Don Juan, destined to become his greatest work. Similar to Childe Harold, this epic recounts the exotic and titillating adventures of a young Byronica hero, giving voice to Byron's social and moral criticisms of the age. Criticized as immoral, Byron defended Don Juan fiercely because it was true-the virtues the reader doesn't see in Don Juan are not there precisely because they are so rarely exhibited in life. Nevertheless, the poem is humorous, rollicking, thoughtful, and entertaining, an enduring masterpiece of English literature. Byron died of fever in Greece in 1824, attempting to finance and lead the Byron Brigade of Greek freedom fighters against the Turks. (Bowker Author Biography) mostrar menos

This 1995 Penguin edition is a real bargain. There is substantial critical apparatus, by leading scholars Susan J Wolfson (who is as good on Byron as she is on Keats) and Peter J Manning, always interesting and illuminating. The selections to my taste are perfectly judged - quite important in a ’Selected Poems’ :). (There is nothing from 'Don Juan'. I think this is defensible because it is notoriously hard to anthologise and Penguin do also offer a similarly bargain priced edition.) And the poems are presented pretty much as they were published. So in particular it is fascinating to see the volume punctuated by the Cantos of ‘Childe Harold's Pilgrimage’. It’s really difficult to imagine this being better done.… (mais)

"Las peregrinaciones" es un largo poema (aunque esta edición nos ofrece una traducción en prosa) dividido en cuatro cantos, que nos cuentan los viajes por Europa del protagonista, un aristócrata joven y descontento. Todo tiene evidentes rasgos autobiográficos, e incluso en el último canto, el más extenso, Byron decide expresamente prescindir de la dicotomía entre el narrador y el protagonista, para hacer más evidente su propia identificación con Harold. En el primer canto se visitan Portugal y España en plena guerra con los franceses, el segundo está dedicado a Grecia bajo el poder turco, el tercero narra el viaje desde Inglaterra hasta Italia y el cuarto, publicado sensiblemente más tarde que los demás, está dedicado a este último país. En todos los casos, Byron no se corta a la hora de dar sus opiniones políticas y sociales sobre la situación de cada zona y también sobre el papel que juegan los ingleses. Siempre sus compatriotas salen mal parados, esa es la verdad. Pero tampoco abundan las buenas impresiones para los demás pueblos (los españoles son una excepción, por cierto), a los que suele acusar de desidia por no rebelarse contra sus opresores, especialmente en el caso de los griegos. El punto malo corresponde a la edición, que no tiene ni una sola nota ni una introducción decente (solo hay una biografía del autor) ni nada que sirva para situar las opiniones, los lugares o los personajes que menciona, que son muchos y no siempre conocidos o incluso claramente mencionados. No olvidemos que se trata de un poema.

En cuanto al "Corsario", cuenta las aventuras de un pirata que va a dar un golpe de mano al turco, es vencido y encarcelado pero liberado por la favorita de su enemigo, que se ha enamorado de él cuando le salva del incendio que el propio pirata había provocado. No obstante, el pirata no puede corresponder al amor de su benefactora (que, de paso, se vengaba así de su amo) porque ha entregado su corazón a su amada que le espera en su base de operaciones.

Así pues, un libro de viajes y una novelita de piratas. Pues sí, es verdad, eso es lo que son. Ambas cosas bastante manidas hoy pero no tanto hace más de dos siglos. Pero lo más importante para mí es la fuerza que Byron pone en lo que escribe. Imagino que el original debe ser todavía más arrebatador. Y eso que la acción, la trama, es lo de menos e incluso a veces resulta confusa. Pero el aristócrata describe los sentimientos de sus personajes con tal pasión que uno se deja arrastrar por los largos parlamentos y por las descripciones a veces excesivas. Porque abundan, y mucho, las descripciones de paisajes característicamente románticos, sobre todo la Naturaleza salvaje y los edificios ruinosos. De fondo, la libertad omnímoda de los protagonistas (por supuesto, sin problemas para subsistir por ello) tanto para actuar como para pensar, y piensan mucho. Tanto Harold como el pirata se pasan la mayor parte del tiempo dando vueltas a la cabeza, aunque es verdad que sin demasiada sutileza para nuestro gusto actual. Pero ya digo: la pasión romántica nos arrebata y suple todos los defectos que hoy podamos encontrar a estas obras.

I love the Everyman's Library Pocket Poets Edition books. These little books are packed with poems, from the Author(s). I have read some several times. I have even used them to teach about poetry and the works of the certain author. Nice add to any library.
