Editorial Reviews

"Rarely in any decade does a book come along that forces us significantly to revise our thinking about an important person or historical period. David Roessel's In Byron's Shadow is such a book.... Roessel's epic sweep, his breadth of vision, are compelling.... Read In Byron's Shadow and youwill rise enlightened; and you will want to visit, perhaps for the second or third time, the Valley of Nemea and Patra and Missolonghi, and stand in the shadow of the Byron of your own conception."--DEUS LOCI: The Lawrence Durrell Journal
