*to be read in conjunction with each other
**Both Childe Harold’s Pilgrimage and Don Juan will be counted as individual works.  The version of CHP that I will be reading is contained in the Oxford edition, which includes Byron’s own notes.  The version of DJ that I will be reading is the Penguin edition simply for ease of reading as it is a much smaller volume than the larger collections.
