BYRON’S WOMEN

Login for pricing

Nine women; one poet named George Gordon, Lord Byron – mad, bad and very very dangerous to know. The most flamboyant of the Romantics, he wrote literary bestsellers, he was a satirist of genius, he embodied the Romantic love of liberty (the Greeks revere him as a national hero), he was the prototype of the modern celebrity – and he treated women (and these women in particular) abominably. In BYRON AND HIS WOMAN, Alex Larman tells their extraordinary, moving and often shocking stories. In so doing, he creates a scurrilous ‘anti-biography’ of one of England’s greatest poets, whose life is views – to deeply unflattering effect – through the prism of the nine damaged woman’s lives.
