Byronic Heroes

OK, Digital Video was the class in which I earned my lowest grade in grad school. Since I took the class, I have become a little more proficient. I made this video to teach my British literature students about the Byronic hero.

  1. What software did you use? The video looks great, but where's Rhett Butler? 🙂 It looks like a great opener for a lesson.

  2. And here too… although it's pinched. I am TOTALLY going to buy this miniseries after we get caught up on our bills 😛



  3. This is really fun. I am showing it on Monday=we are mired in the mess that is Victor Frankenstein. Funny how cardboard Edward Cullen looks next to the real deal, huh?

    I think you just improved your grade….

    1. Yeah, I see what you mean. He is, however, a good way to introduce the concept to our students given their familiarity with him.

  4. Is 'passionate' a required characteristic for Byronic heroes? Cuz I feel like the way you can tell the difference between 'brooding' and just plain 'sulking' is that a character who is brooding is intense because he (or she!) is trying to restrain that passion.
