English Romantic poet who is best known for works such as Don Juan and She Walks in Beauty. He is remembered for his creation of the “Byronic Hero”: a talented but imperfect character whose flaws lead to his downfall.
His first major poetry collection was denounced by literary critics. In retribution, he published a satirical piece about the critics, arousing even more of their ire.
His Byronic hero, pervasive in his literary work, shared many qualities with Byron himself: a distaste for class or rank, great passion, and hubris.
He was married to Anne Isabella Byron and had two daughters; however, he was renowned for his romantic liaisons with many other women.
His work influenced the literary development of Victorian novelist Charlotte Bronte.
