Lord Byron





Born in London  in 1788  died  in Greece 1824.

Lord Byron became a leading romantic poet
and was quite notorious  for his
devil may care attitude, his debts....and his many love affairs.
 Byron's   dark good looks made the ladies swoon  and his poems sold well and were eagerly read by fashionable society.
  He died at the young age of  36.

On the 17th May  1824 two bound volumes of Lord Byron's  Memoirs were fed to the flames by
publisher John Murray.....  he considered them
far to scandalous to be published...... !
What an act of literary vandalism  !

Who knows what secrets and gossip were contained
in those memoirs of the great poet....?
alas we ll never know !
