    Description
    The supreme embodiment of romanticism, Lord Byron was charismatic, witty and melancholic, his pale, languid looks equally irresistable to men and women.
    In this fascinating account, Benita Eisler reveals the complex personality behind the myth. From poor beginnings Byron achieved fame overnight with 'Childe Harold's Pilgrimage' and was soon the undisputed lion of London society. Drawing on previously unavailable family papers Eisler explores the tortuous love triangle that developed between Byron, his long-s uffering wife, Annabella, and his beloved half-sister, Augusta, and the scandal that ruined his reputation and forced him into exile. She brings together the man and the poet as never before, as a bestseller in his own day and a modern voice for ours.
