      Byron in Love Edna O’Brien W. W. Norton, When Dr. Ireland, Dean of Westminster Abbey, was asked by the late poet’s friends about the possibility of Lord Byron taking up a place in Poet’s Corner, they were sternly told, “Carry the body away and say as little about it as possible.”.   While Byron in Love is an aimiable enough jaunt through Byron's life, it cannot be said to bring anything new to the table except for Edna O'Brien's personal fascination with her subject.

    Byron in Love, however, is a different story. An odd blend of description, scholarship, and primary-source material, the book is a pastiche of multiple voices, which have the effect, as Jane Shilling noted in the London Times, of couching her narrative in “a florid patois.”Author: Jessica Loudis. August Guy Cunningham nonfiction Byron in Love: A Short Daring Life by Edna O'Brien. For more than two hundred years, people have been scandalized and fascinated by tales of the alcoholism, debauchery, financial incompetence, and personal cruelty of George Gordon (Lord) Byron, the poet behind classic works such as Don Juan, Manfred, and Childe Harold's Pilgrimage.

      In Loving What Is, bestselling author Byron Katie introduced thousands of people to her simple and profound method of finding happiness through questioning the , I Need Your Love—Is That True? examines a universal, age-old source of anxiety: our relationships with others. In this groundbreaking book, Katie helps you question everything you have been taught to do to gain love /5(21). Byron Katie illuminates one of the most profound ancient Buddhist texts, the Diamond Sutra, to reveal the nature of mind and to liberate us from painful thoughts. At once startlingly fresh and powerfully enlightening, A Mind at Home with Itself offers us a transformative new perspective on life and death.
