George Gordon Byron, commonly known simply as Lord Byron, was a British poet and a leading figure in the Romantic movement. Among Byron's best-known works are the brief poems She Walks in Beauty, When We Two Parted, and So, we'll go no more a roving. This extensive collection contains these and most of Byron's published short poems. Byron was celebrated in life for aristocratic excesses including huge debts, numerous love affairs, rumours of a scandalous incestuous liaison with his half-sister, and self-imposed exile. He was famously described by Lady Caroline Lamb as "mad, bad and dangerous to know". Byron exercised a marked influence on Continental literature and art, and his reputation as a poet is higher in many European countries than in Britain or America, although not as high as in his time, when he was widely thought to be the greatest poet in the world. He is regarded as one of the greatest British poets and remains widely read and influential.

    A legend in his own lifetime, Lord Byron stamped contemporary Western culture with the mark of his dark imagination, and his poetry has lost none of its iconoclastic power today. Without a doubt, this is the finest single-volume edition of Byron currently available. Indispensable for tracing the development of that towering figure of English Romanticism, the Byronic Hero. Thus, this edition presents a complete portrait of the Byronic Hero in his many guises. The strength of this volume rests on the fact that it presents Byron at his most Byronic. These are his most sublime creations - the works that defined the Romantic movement and to read them is to discover anew why he is still ranked, throughout the world, as the greatest English-language writer after Shakespeare.
