Exemplary...its detail and proxility excelling even Nabokov's famous commentary on Pushkin ... The loving battle between these equal monsters is vividly detailed. The annotations make a biography of Byron in themselves - and not only of Byron. The editor's minuteness throws up scores of fascinating characters, such as Napoleon's brother Lucien whose epic poem Charlemagne was - of course - published by Murray. Indeed, the notes are more interesting than the text. A "treasure trove" of fresh insight into Byron and his publisher John Murray. This is a work to which scholars of the Romantic period will refer from the moment it is published, and one whose scholarship will survive for decades. In the literary and cultural sense, a treasure trove. Wholly original and very impressive in its scope... There is no doubt whatsoever that all Byronists would read this volume, admire and learn from the work that has goneinto it, and be modified in their views by what they read here. The loving battle between these equal monsters is vividly detailed. The annotations make a biography of Byron in themselves - and not only of Byron. The editor's minuteness throws up scores of fascinating characters, such as Napoleon's brother Lucien whose epic poem Charlemagne was - of course - published by Murray. Indeed, the notes are more interesting than the text. Nicholas has done his best to piece together what might have occurred. At a stroke, Nicolson's towering act of scholarship has rendered all existing biographies of Byron obsolete.
