    One thought on “The Life of Lord Byron”

    1. Interesting man, although there was a lot about his family lineage and how he became Lord Byron. A bit boring, but part of his story, I suppose.

    2. The author was a friend of Byron's and, although he self consciously tries to present an impartial view of the poet's character, more often than not gives him the benefit of the doubt. He skirts around the more lurid episodes in Byron's life. I fast forwarded through the boring chapters about travels through Europe. The most interesting chapter was about his meetings with a Dr. Kennedy, a Christian apologist with whom he had discussions about matters of faith.

    3. It was useful rather than as entertaining as I hoped it would be. I guess one ought to read it as a contemporary account. I did enjoy the comparisons of excerpts from Childe Harold's Pilgrimage to actual events in Lord Bryon's travels as a young man.

    4. Read this long ago and it got me fascinated by the great poet.It's interesting to know all of his history, including being clubbed foot and seriously in debt most of the time! Casanova indeed!
