George Gordon, Lord Byron (1788-1824) is one of the greatest and most entertaining poets of any age. In the first full-scale biography for over forty years, Phyllis Grosskurth uses the great poems adroitly and accessibly, draws on the wealth of Byron's letters and, above all, has had access to the Lovelace Papers, which document Byron's disastrous marriage and its aftermath until his death - a combination which has produced a compelling portrait of a fascinating, complex and extraordinary man.
Contains 16 pages of black and white photographs.
