Biography of romantic Scots-English poet George Gordon, 8th Lord Byron. Born the lame son of 'Mad Jack' Byron in 1788, brought up in the back streets of Aberdeen by an impoverished mother, plagued at an early age by the financial difficulties of his estate, he enjoyed few of the advantages of his class. He would become one of the great English poets who died at 36, fighting for the liberation of Greece from Turkey.
