Lord George Gordon Byron
Poet for the young, confused, intrigued
He studied at Aberdeen Grammar School and then Trinity College in Cambridge. In 1806 his first published volume was Fugitive Pieces. His volume was very obscure and childish. Byron's second collection was Hours of Idleness, which had many poems about John Edelston a younger friend he had come to deeply love.
When byron was 20 he was in great debt, he then took a touring trip through the mediteranian. His sexual freedom and climate changes influenced his poems. When he returned to England in 1811 he published his "Childe Harold's Pilgramage" which sold out in 3 days. It was very popular. He used his new popularity to speak for workers rights and social reforms.
Byrons social life was rocky, married and divorced, he fled England for the charges his ex-wife had acused him for. Once he got to Italy he started working on his masture piece "Doan Juan". Byron died April 19.1824 at the age of 36 "Don Juan" was not completed. His work inspired many poets after him and will never be forgotten.
