George Gordon Byron, 6th Baron Byron , FRS (22 January 1788 – 19 April 1824), commonly known simply as Lord Byron , was a British poet , politician, and a leading figure in the Romantic movement . Among his best-known works are the lengthy narrative poems, Don Juan and Childe Harold's Pilgrimage , and the short lyric poem, " She Walks in Beauty ".

But Byron’s affinity with reality prevented him from "Spurning the clay-cold bonds which round our being cling." Nature would provide him with no permanent escape from himself, no remedy for his suffering. Near the end he returns to his first theme, of personal sorrow defiantly borne by a Promethean rebel:

But words are things, and a small drop of ink, Falling like dew, upon a thought, produces That which makes thousands, perhaps millions, think; 'Tis strange, the shortest letter which man uses Instead of speech, may form a lasting link Of ages; to what straits old Time reduces Frail man, when paper - even a rag like this - , Survives himself, his tomb, and all that's his. from Don Juan

(1788-1824). One of the most talked-of men of his day was George Gordon, Lord Byron. His handsome face, riotous living and many love affairs, and a tragic death at the age of 36 made him a romantic, fascinating figure to both men and women of the time. Today his reputation is chiefly as a poet.
