Lord George Gordon Byron

22 January 1788 - 19 April 1824

Lord Byron was an English poet known as much for his life of scandals, exile and excess as for his elegant and well-crafted poetry. Known by his peers as dark, seductive and romantic, his legacy, the brooding Byronic hero still influences modern audiences two hundred years on.
