Abstract:
This thesis is concerned with the construction of gendered and sexualised identity in the writings of Lord Byron. The self is narrated as a performance of certain culturally coded ideals, but these ideals are constantly complicated by desires which disrupt uniform notions of gender. My thesis argues that it is through the complex negotiations between desires and cultural codes, between performances and subjectivities, that characterisation functions in Byron's works.
