Memorable Quotations: Lord Byron
(Kindle Book at Amazon)


Lord Byron, George Gordon Noel Byron, 6th Baron, (1788–1824), was one of the illustrious English romantic poets. In his life and in his poetry, Lord Byron exemplifies romanticism. Born with a clubfoot, he grew to be a dark, attractive man, adored by, but derisive of, women. When an early work, Hours of Idleness (1807), was scorned by the Edinburgh Review, he retorted with English Bards and Scotch Reviewers (1809), a satire that made him celebrated. His countless love affairs before and after his ill-fated marriage (1815–16) to Anne Isabella Milbanke (notably with Lady Caroline Lamb, wife of Viscount Melbourne, and Claire Clairmont, Percy Bysshe Shelley's sister-in-law) made him notorious. Byron settled in Venice in 1817. After drifting restlessly about Europe, he died working for Greek independence. Byron's writings include long romances and stories in verse, e.g., Childe Harold (1812–18), The Bride of Abydos (1813), The Corsair (1814), Manfred (1817), Beppo (1818), and Mazeppa (1819); shorter works such as The Prisoner of Chillon; and lyrics. His masterpiece is Don Juan (1819–24), an epic-satire.
