  • Taking a fresh approach to Byron, this book argues that he should be understood as a poet whose major works develop a carefully reasoned philosophy of knowledge. Situating him with reference to the thought of the period, it argues for Byron as an active thinker, whose final philosophical stance - reader-centred scepticism - has wide-ranging practical implications.€ The book examines Childe Harold I, II and III, The Giarou, Lara, Manfred and Don Juan, considering each as a step in Byron's evolving philosophy. Showing how Byron draws upon the ideas and works of John Locke, David Hume, and George Berkeley, as well as Scottish Enlightenment philosophers such as William Drummond and Thomas Reid, The Development of Byron's Philosophy of Knowledge frames a Byron who is influenced by the intellectual advances of his period but who moves beyond them, a thinker in his own right
