Byron was perhaps the first modern cultural celebrity. His poetry took Britain and Europe by storm, whilst his persona provoked first adulation and then public exercration.

This study - while taking stock of the myths and misconceptions surrounding Byron - makes clear the nature of his achievements as the composer of beautiful lyrics as well as satirical masterpieces. Byron emerged from his heritage - John Dryden, Samuel Johnson and Alexander Pope - but with much greater fluidity as a writer, and also with the self-searching motivation to express some unpalatable truths about our appetites and emotions.
