On A Special Copy Of Caroline Lamb's Glenarvon Recently Discovered In The Koninklijke Bibliotheek, Paul Douglass, Ria Grimbergen

Faculty Publications

An Unpublished Letter Of Lord Byron To Lady Caroline Lamb, Paul Douglass

Faculty Publications

Lord Byron took a highly ambivalent attitude toward female authorship, and yet his poetry, letters, and journals exhibit many proofs of the power of women's language and perceptions. He responded to, borrowed from, and adapted parts of the works of Maria Edgeworth, Harriet Lee, Madame de Stael, Mary Shelley, Elizabeth lnchbald, Hannah Cowley, Joanna Baillie, Lady Caroline Lamb, Mary Robmson, and Charlotte Dacre. The influence of women writers on his career may also be seen in the development of the female (and male) characters in his narrative poetry and drama. This essay focuses on the influence upon Byron of ...

What Lord Byron Learned From Lady Caroline Lamb, Paul Douglass

Faculty Publications

Lady Caroline Lamb fictionalized the Byronic persona in Glenarvon (1816) and gave voice to the female characters that remain largely silent in Byron’s early work. Byron responded to her mimicry and to the female perspective of Glenarvon by creating a feminized hero and strong speaking roles for women in Don Juan, though his stated purpose was to undermine, not uphold, feminine power.
