George Gordon Noel, Lord Byron Born on January 22, 1788, Lord Byron was the sixth Baron Byron of a rapidly fading aristocratic family, Certain aspects of Romanticism -exile, audacity, and passion for love and liberty-found their powerful embodiment in the life and works of Byron. Therefore, he was perhaps the most spectacular of the Romaintics and the cult of Byronism grew all over Europe. when Byron died, Tennyson scratched on a rock: ‘On a day when the whole word seemed darker for me.’ Byron was in more ways than one,an anomaly among the Romantics and he has suffered through being judged by the tradition of eighteenth-century poetry to the heart of Romanticism. In a way he was a ‘bridge’ between two hostile schools of poets. The feeling for nature and the treatment of love, beauty and liberty found in other Romantic poets is found in Byron as well, but in a more has been a revival of interest in Byron’s poetry since his style, which is thoroughly uninhibited, can teach the modern poet how to solve his problem of communication.
