The selected poems of a legendary romantic.

Yet he produced some of the most daring and exuberant poetry of the Romantic age, from ‘To Caroline’ and ‘To Woman’ to the satirical English Bards and Scotch Reviewers, his exotic Eastern tales and the colourful narrative of Childe Harold’s Pilgrimage, the work that made him famous overnight and gave birth to the idea of the brooding Byronic hero.
