Abstract

"Life Lessons From Byron." Matthew Bevis. Pan Macmillan. September 2013. --- Born in 1788, Lord Byron was an English poet and a leading figure of the Romantic movement. A prodigious poetic gift and a scandalous private life made him famous throughout Europe. Miranda Nell finds that the lessons covered in this book are unlikely to be major life-changers, and anyone truly committed to the task will be inclined to seek out the poetry itself, but as a short introductory read, Life Lessons From Byron manages to reveal a thoughtful perspective and provide an enjoyable reflection.
