Hit the town with the poet who was as famed for his sexual appetites as his literary brilliance.
He was a rock star before rock and roll was discovered. Brooding, mysterious, driven by all-consuming appetites and the object of worship by throngs of adoring fans, he cast an enormous shadow over the creative world of 19th-century Britain, even as his personal habits were condemned by his contemporaries.
As arguably the greatest of the romantic poets, Lord Byron is a fixture in literary anthologies. During his own life, however, his words competed for attention with his scandalous deeds. BIOGRAPHY® explores the private world of this infamous dandy, showing that beneath the dashing exterior lurked a more complex, tormented character. Filled with contemporary accounts of his exploits, expert commentary on his life and writings, and the lines of his best-known works, this is a fascinating portrait of one of literature's most compelling figures.
