Described as 'Mad, bad and dangerous to know' by one of his lovers, Lady Caroline Lamb, Lord Byron was the quintessential Romantic. Flamboyant, charismatic and brilliant, he remains almost as notorious for his life - as a political revolutionary, sexual adventurer and traveller - as he does for his literary work. Yet he produced some of the most daring and exuberant poetry of the Romantic age, from 'To Caroline' and 'To Woman' to the satirical English Bards and Scotch Reviewers, his exotic Eastern tales and the colourful narrative of Childe Harold's Pilgrimage, the work that made him famous overnight and gave birth to the idea of the brooding Byronic hero.

  1. She Walks in Beauty
    Lisa, 1 augusti 2014

    Inte en lättläst bok, men är du ett fan så är det värt de.

    "In secret we met
    In silence I grieve,
    That thy heart could forget,
    Thy spirit deceive
    If I should meet thee
    After long years,
    How should I greet thee?
    With silence and tears."
