Described as ‘Mad, bad and dangerous to know’ by one of his lovers, Lady Caroline Lamb, Lord Byron was the quintessential Romantic. Flamboyant, charismatic and brilliant, he remains almost as notorious for his life – as a political revolutionary, sexual adventurer and traveller – as he does for his literary work. Yet he produced some of the most daring and exuberant poetry of the Romantic age, from ‘To Caroline’ and ‘To Woman’ to the satirical English Bards and Scotch Reviewers, his exotic Eastern tales and the colourful narrative of Childe Harold’s Pilgrimage, the work that made him famous overnight and gave birth to the idea of the brooding Byronic hero.
