About this item

One was the mother who bore him; three were women who adored him; one was the sister he slept with; one was his abused and sodomized wife; one was his legitimate daughter; one was the fruit of his incest; another was his friend Shelley's wife, who avoided his bed and invented science fiction instead. Nine women; one poet named George Gordon, Lord Byron—the most flamboyant of the Romantics, he wrote literary bestsellers, he embodied the Romantic love of liberty, he was the prototype of the modern celebrity—and he treated women abominably. Alex Larman tells their extraordinary, moving and often shocking stories. He creates a scurrilous "anti-biography" of one of England's greatest poets, whose life is viewed—to deeply unflattering effect—through the prism of the nine damaged woman's lives.
