Lord Byron Book

In this series a contemporary poet selects and introduces a poet of the past. By their choice of poems and by the personal and critical reactions they express in their prefaces the editors offer insights into their own work as well as providing an accessible and passionate introduction to the most important poets in our literature. George Gordon was born in London in 1788 of Scottish French and English extraction. He succeeded to a baronetcy in 1798 and as Lord Byron he was soon to become the most famous poet of his age - with the publication of "Childe Harold" in 1812 - as well as one of its most notorious characters. His career spanned a momentous period in European history in which Byron himself was deeply involved. He left England in 1816 and died in Missolonghi Greece (where he had gone to join the forces struggling for Greek independence) in 1824.Read More
