Editorial Reviews

Review

`landmark edition ... long awaited by all who treasure Byron's poetry. Our work and our lasting pleasure are alike cut out for us.' Stuart Curran, Keats-Shelley Journal

`McGann's work, the first in seventy-five years to attempt a systematic critical editing of the entire corpus, fulfils a genuine need for an authoritative edition in our day ... McGann, by means of this edition, has placed Byron scholarship on a new footing.' Frederick I. Beaty, Studies in Romanticism

`if the remaining volumes are comparable to the first three, this will be one of the finest editions we have of any of the Romantic poets ... an edition ... which anyone seeking the fullest possible information about Byron's poetry must now regard as canonical.' Ian Jack, Review

`The editorial thoroughness that marked volume one ... is fully sustained in the subsequent volumes ... This edition is going to be compulsory for serious students of Byron' Allan Rodway, Times Higher Education Supplement

`The edition is a notable achievement and will be indispensable for Byron scholars.' Andrew Rutherford, Notes and Queries

`McGann has done Byron an invaluable service, restoring to his work the complexity and significance for so long stripped from it by formalist readings. Now that the final volume is in place, it is possible to look back over the entire Clarendon edition and be grateful for more than its many corrections of fact and discoveries about the circumstances of composition ... or its restoration of corrupt or omitted lines of text.' New York Review

'the Garland facsimiles are indispensable ... They also underline the staggering nature of the task McGann undertook in preparing the Clarendon edition, and the magnitude of his achievement. Now that the final volume is in place, it is possible to look back over the entire Clarendon edition and be grateful ... McGann's attention to Byron's politics, his emphasis on the subtlety and daring of his bawdy, richness of allusion, and the range and essential cohesion of his work, have made it easier to understand the poet's colossal European reputation.' The New York Review

'the staggering nature of the task McGann undertook in preparing the Clarendon edition, and the magnitude of his achievement ... it is difficult to see how McGann could have been expected to pack in much more' Anne Barton, The New York Review

`magnificent index' London review of Books

'Congratulations to professor McGann on bringing to conclusion the seventh and final volume of Byron's peotical works. ... a magnificent edition ...' Francis Berry. Winchester. Notes and Queries Vol 41 June '94
