Byron: The Last Journey April 1823-April 1824

by Harold Nicolson




Lord Byron's first epic poem, "Childe Harold", was published in 1812. Only 12 years later after a life including exile, marriage and fatherhood, he died aged 36 at Missolonghi in Greece. First written in 1924, this is a narrative of the last two years of Lord Byron's life when he left Italy to help organize the fight for Greece's freedom from the Turks.
