About the Author

Lord Byron (1788-1824), as the English poet George Gordon Byron, sixth Baron Byron is commonly known, was the most flamboyant and notorious of the Romantics and a leader of the era’s poetic revolution. While pursuing a unconventional lifestyle of international travel, risqué love affairs, and general debauchery, he produced massive amounts of beautiful, emotion-stirring works. He died at the young age of 36 after falling ill while commanding Greek troops in a fight for independence from the Ottoman Empire.

Though Lord Byron was refused the honor of a burial at Westminster Abbey, as was custom for someone of his stature, his memorial stone was finally placed in the abbey’s Poets’ Corner in 1969.
