Known simply as Lord Byron , he was a poet and politician who became a revolutionary in the Greek War of Independence and is one of the leading figures of the Romantic Movement of his era. He is one of the greatest English poets and he remains widely read and influential today. He travelled extensively across Europe, especially in Italy, where he lived for seven years in Venice, Ravenna and Pisa. During his stay in Italy he frequently visited his friend and fellow poet Percy Bysshe Shelley. He spent his childhood as a clubfooted, impoverished son of a Scottish noblewoman. That experience appears to have turned him into a snob, though he had compassion for outsiders and outcasts, provided they were amusing.

Pray tell Mr Rushton his son is well, and doing well I like him, because, like myself, he seems a friendless animal. Thus far the ridiculous part of my narrative belongs to others, now comes my turn.
