The epitome of the Romantic literary hero, Lord Byron was as well-known in his time for the revolutionary panache with which he lived as for his extremely popular verse. “As a myth,” wrote Bertrand Russell, “his importance, especially on the continent, was enormous.” His many tempestuous relationships were the subject of scandal which only added to his celebrity. His name has even entered into our language to describe a man of deep passion and defiance.

Satirical, shocking, romantic, and dramatic, Byron’s poetry is replete with witticisms, surprise rhymes, and editorial comment.

Poems in this collection include:
1. From “Don Juan”
2. From “English Bards and Scotch Reviewers”
3. “The Destruction of Sennacherib”
4. “She Walks in Beauty”
5. “Remember Thee! Remember Thee!”
6. “To Thomas Moore”
7. “So, We’ll Go No More a Roving”
8. “Epigrams”
9. “Churchill’s Grave”
10. “Epistle to Augusta”
11. “Lines on Hearing That Lady Byron Was Ill”
12. “Beppo”
13. “The Vision of Judgment”
