Description: The British Library boasts the world's largest collection of original manuscripts, as well as an outstanding collection of letters, personal diaries, first editions, and other literary treasures. The titles in this series take full advantage of this vast source of documentary evidence by illustrating each of these lively writers' biographies with state-of-the-art facsimiles of pertinent documents and reproductions of art from the period. Penned by expert biographers, each of these books also contains an index, further reading list, and a chronology of the writer's life.

Described by a contemporary as "mad, bad, and dangerous to know", Byron (1788-1824) has been haunted by his infamous reputation for over 200 years. This readable and lively biography of the poet examines his chaotic, contradictory life as an aristocrat with republican views, a proponent of romantic love notorious for his casual relationships, and a religious agnostic who admired Roman Catholicism. Byron traveled through Europe on horseback, and on his return published Childe Harold's Pilgrimage. The poem was a bestseller, which along with follow-up successes Don Juan and Bride of Abydos secured Lord Byron's reputation as one of England's most talented poets and Romanticism's most recognizable symbol.
