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.

Byron's poetry, satirical, shocking, romantic, and dramatic, is replete with witticisms, surprise rhymes, and editorial comment. Poems in this collection include She Walks in Beauty, So, We'll Go No More Aroving, Epistle to Augusta, Beppo, The Spell Is Broke, the Charm Is Flown! Churchill's Grave, excepts from Don Juan, and more.

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Steve | 5/28/2013

    " The roots of modern fantasy can be found (in part) in these pages. Great stuff and I am glad that I was belatedly exposed to it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Chris Brimmer | 1/9/2013

    " Hey its Byron. If you like romance poetry with a male edge there is no other. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Gardner | 9/19/2012

    " Let's face it, Byron is a badass--one of the world's first antiheroes. "Childe Harold's Pilgrimage" is a must-read for any reader of poetry. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Meagan | 5/14/2012

    " world kept revealing byron to me...austen, joyce, movies...so, i figured i needed to find out what this man was about. Glad I did. If you're not a romantic, don't read him. "

    " An awesome compendium from an awesome poet. Byron will always be one of my faves, so poignant and tragic. His works have been reviewed by many far more knowledgeable than I; I just like what I see. :) "

    " A good survey of Byron's works. I still have much more to get through at this point. "
