Did you know Alice does another podcast called Of the Devil's Party, where they and their friend Rowan do a deep dive into dark hero archetypes?
It's really good. You should listen to it! ...It also might help explain what all this "Byronic" stuff we keep talking about is.
On this bonus/preview episode Alice and Rowan begin their discussion of Gothic villains by examining Byron’s 1817 closet drama Manfred and its debt to the Gothic tradition. The pair discuss Byron’s life, work, and experimentation with dark hero archetypes, and whether there is actually such as thing as a Byronic Hero. They consider the way Byron experiments with Dark Heroism by combining existing heroic archetypes and traditions such as The Wandering Jew, the Child of Nature, The Hero of Sensibility, Prometheus, Satan, the Gothic Villain and Faustus.
