George Gordon Lord Byron (1788 - 1824), English poet, "...Biographical, critical, visual, and cultural approaches to Byron identify his pre-eminent status within English and European Romanticism. On a broader canvas they illuminate the vital energy and self-determination that define Byron's individuality as an iconic figure who gave his life in the cause of liberation."
