Lord Byron was a gifted poet and a superb letter writer. His letters are enlivened by his wit, irony, honesty, and the sharpness of his observation of people. They provide a vivid self-portrait of the man who, of all his contemporaries, seems to express attitudes and feelings most in tune with the twentieth century while also offering a glimpse into his own time.

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.
