This study considers the relation between Byron's texts and Spain. It is both an illustration of Byron's journey to Iberia and an examination of Byron's images of Spain in poetry, prose and letters. Byron's treatment of Spain is subject to many of the distinctive pressures of Romantic culture, showing an involvment with nationalism, imperialism, and the exotic as well as an acute sense of the political and cultural implications of the Napoleonic and Post Napoleonic period. In addition to the major Byronic works, the text analyzes minor ones, such as "The Girl of Cadiz, The Age of Bronze", Byron's letters, and his translation of a famous Spanish romance, "A Very Mournful Ballad on the Siege and Conquest of Alhama". Byron's Spain is ultimately found to be a complex web of history, culture, folklore, literature and landscape.
