Steerforth's occasional outbreaks of remorse reveal a tortured character Harvey, , echoing a Byronic remorse. Harvey concludes that Steerforth is a remarkable blend of both villain and hero, and exploration of both sides of the Byronic character. Scholars have also drawn parallels between the Byronic hero and the solipsist heroes of Russian literature.
In particular, Alexander Pushkin 's famed character Eugene Onegin echoes many of the attributes seen in Childe Harold's Pilgrimage , particularly, Onegin's solitary brooding and disrespect for traditional privilege. The first stages of Pushkin's poetic novel Eugene Onegin appeared twelve years after Byron's Childe Harold's Pilgrimage , and Byron was of obvious influence Vladimir Nabokov argued in his Commentary to Eugene Onegin that Pushkin had read Byron during his years in exile just prior to composing Eugene Onegin.
The Byronic hero is also featured in many contemporary novels, and has played a role in modern literature as the precursor to a popular form of antihero. Erik, the Phantom from Gaston Leroux 's Phantom of the Opera — is a well-known example from the first half of the twentieth century Markos, , while Ian Fleming 's James Bond if not his cinematic incarnations shows all the earmarks in the second half: "Lonely, melancholy, of fine natural physique, which has become in some way ravaged There are also suggestions of the potential of a Byronic heroine in Byron's works.
Charles J. Clancy argues that Aurora Raby in Don Juan possesses many of the characteristics typical of a Byronic hero. Described as "silent, lone" in the poem, her life has indeed been spent in isolation — she has been orphaned from birth.

She validates Thorslev's assertion that Byronic heroes are "invariably solitaries" Clancy, Yet, like her male counterpart, she evokes an interest from those around her, "There was awe in the homage which she drew" XV, Again, this is not dissimilar to the description of the fascination that Byron himself encountered wherever he went McCarthy, Her apparent mournful nature is also reminiscent of the regretful mien of the Byronic hero.
She is described as having deeply sad eyes, "Eyes which sadly shone, as Seraphs' shine" XV, This was a specific characteristic of the Byronic hero Clancy, This seems to express a despair with humanity, not unlike the despair present in Byron's Cain , as Thorslev notes. She herself admits to despairing at "man's decline" XV, 45 , therefore this brings her into direct comparison with Cain's horror at the destruction of humanity Clancy, From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

Jan 30, Ricky rated it really liked it Shelves: freaky-supernatural-adventures , science-fiction , why-isn-t-this-a-bloody-movie-yet , apocalyptic-or-post-apocalyptic , thrillers , fantasy. I was told this book would be a zombie tale in the vein of Warm Bodies or iZombie. Maybe not so much the former although the movie is closer in tone to this book than the original Isaac Marion book , but the latter? A little more right on the money.
Right from the get-go, the book gets into some gloriously grossgusting territory that also easily invites comparisons to that holy grail of zombie-based awesomeness, Zombieland. I mean, those early chapters with the blood everywhere, and the ugly go I was told this book would be a zombie tale in the vein of Warm Bodies or iZombie.
I mean, those early chapters with the blood everywhere, and the ugly goiter-like swellings? My only complaint is the way Byron's love interest is handled. Nothing against Elise - she's super-cool - but it feels like Byron falls in love with her way too quickly. To his credit, though, he points out that very fact in his narration, so he's at least aware of the fact that he's fallen victim to a common trope - which is far more than I can say for most characters.
