Description
The acclaimed biographer of James Joyce, Edna O'Brien presents an intimate biography of Lord Byron that suits her fiery and charismatic subject. She follows the poet from the dissipations of Regency London to the wilds of Albania and the Socratic pleasures of Greece and Turkey, culminating in his meteoric rise to fame at the age of 24 on the publication of Childe Harold.

"Beastly, sublime Byron, the lame Adonis, was a miserable son, a rapacious lover (of both sexes), a wanton spendthrift, a tender friend, a reckless adventurer, and, of course, an immortal poet, who condensed ten lifetimes into his brief existence. Beautiful, wise Edna O'Brien condenses those lifetimes into this rich and intense portrait. Few writers are better suited than she is to take his measure, and to plumb his heart."—Judith Thurman

"Lord Byron was both the fallen angel and ultimate rock star, unmatchable by any who have come after. Edna O'Brien catches the audacious wickedness of Regency England and high-Romantic Italy in the days of Byron and his best friend, Shelley. The full range of Byron's polymorphous perversity is gloriously on display in this remorseless tale of a very great poet."—Harold Bloom
