“Manfred” by Lord Byron   Byron undertook “Manfred,” his most Gothic work, in late 1816, a few months after the famed ghost-story sessions which provided the initial impetus for Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein and John Polidori’s The Vampyre, which some argue is based on Byron’s fragment of a novel, his brief response to the challenge of the ghost-story sessions.
