The Byron Journal was founded in 1973. It is published twice annually for the Byron Society by Liverpool University Press.


This internationally renowned journal includes scholarly articles and notes on all aspects of Byron’s writings and life, and those of his peers.

The Byron Journal not only provides a forum for leading authorities to discuss all things Byronic but also contains news of significant events and conferences, together with book reviews.

We always welcome letters and reviews of any works relating to Lord Byron, so please get in touch if you would like to make a submission or a suggestion.
