Fiona MacCarthy's Byron: Life and Legend is a breakthrough in reinterpreting Byron's life and poetry for a new generation, showing him as a formative figure in European romanticism, as Byron described himself, 'the Napoleon of Rhyme'. MacCarthy brings a fresh eye to Byron's short but brilliant life, from his embattled relations with his mother, his early travels in the Mediterranean and the East, his relationships with adolescent boys, to the tragicomedy of his marriage, his incestuous love for his half-sister and the clamorous attention of his female fans.
