BYRON: The Impossible Hero
A concise biography of the most famous English poet of his time, as condemned for the scandals of his private live – his inveterate womanising, his rumoured bisexuality, his incestuous affair with his half-sister, his gargantuan debts – as he was celebrated for his poetry, which was known and quoted not only in England but all over Europe. The books ends with an account of his decision to sail to Greece to fight in the war for independence against the Turks, his brave but almost farcical combat with the competing Greek factions and his death of fever, far from those he loved, accompanied only by his devoted old servant Fletcher and Loukas, the Greek boy who was the last of his romantic loves.
