Summary This new study of Byron explores the 'geo-historical' - places where historically significant events have occurred. Cheeke examines the ways in which the notion of "being there" becomes the central claim and shaping force in Byron's poetry up to 1818. He goes on to explore the concept of "being in-between" which characterizes Byron's 1818-21 poetry. Finally, Byron's complex nostalgia for England, his sense of "having been there," is read in relation to a broader critique of memory, homesickness and place-attachment.
