Byron and Women [and men]
Byron and Women [and men] is a compilation of new biographical and literary essays, examining the poet's bisexuality and the ways in which it affected his poetry and drama. Areas covered are Byron and gender-studies (a general introduction), Byron's Boyfriends (an aspect of his life which has traditionally been neglected), the Male Gaze in the Oriental Tales, homosexuality in Venice, Byron's Nottinghamshire love-life, sex and gender in Don Juan, bisexuality in Byron and Shakespeare, and Byron's heroines contrasted with those of Mozart. The volume has as appendices new editions of the notorious poems Don Leon and Leon to Annbella, with startling theories as to their authorship.
