    “Actions are our epochs: mine Have made my days and nights imperishable, Endless, and all alike, as sands on the shore, Innumerable atoms.”

    Quoting:()The poem's narrative line is not enough to organize in the plot, because the attention deviate from external events to meet almost exclusively on the inner experience that unfolds on stage, unique and authentic, located in the consciousness of the protagonist. Causing a claustrophobic effect, the text focalization (incomparably more lyrical than dramatic) highlights the centrality, the radical isolation and the tragic condition of Manfredo character, incapable of intimate figure change [...]

    The Byronic hero is deftly explored here, as in Childe Harold, but in a way which lends to a reading that this poem is Byron's confession of his forbidden love affair with his half-sister Augusta. But what is there to say about this classic, really? The prose is arresting and Manfred is inspiring, a character through life found no affinity with human beings and bucked the status-quo at every turn. Manfred strives to be the quintessential Nietzschean superman, valuing the forgetfulness of past in [...]

    I love Lord Byron and yes this was a reread too as I had written my midterm on it and now I'm writing my final on it and yes I'm comparing it to the Mariner in terms of the sublime and the supernatural I'm terribly original and smart I know let me live,,Can y'all believe this messy bitch slept with his sister then wrote a whole emo confessional about it? #mood (except not really because I'm an only child and not as thirsty, not to shame but,)

    "My dwelling is the shadow of the night,Why doth thy magic torture me with light?"Pergunta o Sexto Espírito invocado por Manfredo. De um modo delicado (o sublime sabor da poesia) vão-se alternando as vozes em torno da dor do protagonista; Manfredo exaspera: a dor da memória (a dolorosa culpa) e o sofrimento da perda estão no centro das suas tormentas. No longo poema vivemos entre dois mundos, físico e metafísico, rompendo as barreiras da ciência e da lógica; vivemos envoltos num manto de [...]

    While this poem had some of the most "quotable" lines ever I didn't really like all the supernatural elements in it. Hence my modest rating. The only person who get's a pass with ghost stories is Shakespeare. Because in Hamlet it was more like the icing on the cake. In this story however it felt overdone. "Ye were not meant for me - Earth, take these atoms!"Classic Lord Byron. Love it.

    Manfredilla on ongelma. Hänellä on ollut jonkinlainen kielletty suhde jumalatar Astarten kanssa. Yksinäistä erilaisia henkiä tuskansa äärellä kohtavaa miestä ei edes kirkon mies onnistu pelastamaan. Poeettinen pienoisnäytelmä.

    "'tis not so difficult to die!"What a fascinating quote from a character whose great triumph of independence is choosing death. Why doesn't he say, "Choosing death has been a hard decision and will be an incredible sacrifice!" No, he says it wasn't that hard to do. This is a marvelous and haunting poem, one of Lord Byron's great works. I revisit it from time to time. And I recommend it whether you are a Byron fan or not.My favorite passage is Manfred's great monologue in Act III about a night vi [...]

    The plot: "Manfred"s title character broods over mysterious feelings of despair and ennui, calls up spirits of Nature, persuades the forces of evil to call up his dead love in a futile attempt to set his soul at peace. The drama ends with his death, of course, and his friends wonder where his soul is headed -- "whither? I dread to think." The appeal: How could such a despicably loathsome rake like Lord Byron write such exquisite poetry? The lines in Manfred are keen and clear, lyrical and lovely [...]

    Avendo già letto questo titolo in altra edizione, riciclo ciò che scrissi altrove.(Aggiungendo soltanto che la traduzione è molto bella ma non rende, semplicemente, la musicalità del verso di Byron in originale, che è qualcosa di sa di sublime.)Capolavoro. Ma un capolavoro di quel genere che non trovi le parole per commentare, perché di parole non ce ne sono, perché tutte le possibili parole che ti vengono in mente sarebbero sempre e comunque troppo banali. Chiamalo "manifesto del Romanti [...]

    Capolavoro. Ma un capolavoro di quel genere che non trovi le parole per commentare, perché di parole non ce ne sono, perché tutte le possibili parole che ti vengono in mente sarebbero sempre e comunque troppo banali. Chiamalo "manifesto del Romanticismo". Indubbiamente lo è (e perché diamine non lo facciano studiare già dal liceo non mi è chiaro). Ma definirlo così è riduttivo. Questa è una delle opere stilisticamente più complete (e complesse) della letteratura mondiale. E' poema dram [...]

    Reading this made me like Manfred Symphony more than I did already. I had no idea that was possible. The poem was everything I expected… and then some.

    What an incredibly Faustian story! Interesting to read alongside Prometheus Unbound -- such different takes on independence.

    Read for uni.Not bad but Emo AF!"If I had never lived, that which I loveHad still been living; had I never loved,That which I love would still be beautiful -Happy and giving happiness."

    Short, to the point, beautifully written, and full of an ever accelerating, transcendent sort of intensity in feeling and thought. One of those in-between mixtures of Romanticism and the Gothic, and in my opinion a must read for fans of both.

    Before I read Manfred, I had read quite a few Classic Gothic novels and I can tell you that this closet-drama written by Byron gave me more chills and overwhelmed me much more, a thousand more times than any Gothic story I have ever read. One of the very best poems I have ever read and I very highly recommend it.Once again: Lord Byron is the god of poetry!

    Manfred is a metaphysical closet drama about a man tormented by an all-consuming and nameless anguish. The source of that anguish remains intentionally--and problematically--vague, so that one feels as though the play can't be read anyway BUT biographically at times. Subtracting from the play's narrative soundness--and therefore its capacity to impact readers--is a fundamental ambiguity as to whether or not Manfred's dilemma arises from his Faustian acquisition of some horrible knowledge about t [...]

    After reading an excerpt of Byron’s Manfred in a collection of his poetry, I knew I had to read the full closet drama. It is a fascinating work that develops ideas of spirits, power originating from oneself instead of from gods or nature, dying on your own terms, trying to forget past sins, living a life without the need for a final redemption. The Poetry Foundation’s biography of Byron says its main theme is defiant humanism, and I find those words perfect. Many have speculated that Manfred [...]

    Manfredo es uno de esos poemas que te llenan con una descripción tangente de su realidad.Manfredo es una confesión que muy pocos pueden comprender. (Google es tu amigo.)Me agrada la primera impresión que tengo de un héroe byroniano, que como todo, espero que mejore con el paso de las páginas."Somos la víctima del tiempo y de nuestros terrores; cada día se nos presentan nuevas penas; vivimos sin embargo maldiciendo la vida y temiendo la muerte. Gimiendo bajo el yugo que nos oprime, y carga [...]
