With deep sorrow we announce the death of Charles E. Robinson, admired and loved by his many students and by scholars of Byron and Romanticism worldwide, on November 20, 2016.

A graduate of Mount Saint Mary’s College in Maryland, Charlie earned his Ph.D. from Temple University under the guidance of the great David V. Erdman. In 1965, Charlie joined the English Department at the University of Delaware, where he remained for his entire career and where, after 1990, he was joined by the influential Shelley editor Donald H. Reiman. At Delaware, Charlie served as Director of Graduate Studies in English from 1981 to 1993. He also served for two decades on the editorial board for the University of Delaware Press.

With deep sadness we announce the recent death of Joseph Byron Yount III, familiarly known to Byronists worldwide as J. B., on October 2, 2016.

Over a quarter of a century ago J. B., always interested in the poet whose name he shared, contacted Jerome McGann with a scholarly question. “There’s a Byron Society, and you should join it,” Jerry advised.  J. B. joined, and for decades he enriched Byronworld with his distinctive presence. J. B. attended international Byron conferences in Nottingham, Prague, Venice, Boston/New York/ Newark DE, St. Andrews, and Versailles.
