In this series, a contemporary poet selects and introduces a poet of the past. By their choice of poems and by the personal and critical reactions they express in their prefaces, the editors offer insights into their own work as well as providing an accessible and passionate introduction to the most important poets in our literature.
George Gordon was born in London in 1788, of Scottish, French and English extraction. He succeeded to a baronetcy in 1798, and as Lord Byron he was soon to become the most famous poet of his age - with the publication of Childe Harold, in 1812 - as well as one of its most notorious characters. His career spanned a momentous period in European history, in which Byron himself was deeply involved. He left England in 1816, and died in Missolonghi, Greece (where he had gone to join the forces struggling for Greek independence) in 1824.

In each of the books in this series, a mystery is described, and the case for and against a rational scientific explanation is put forward. Evidence is provided in the form of eyewitness accounts and written and pictorial reports. Whilst there may not be a scientific explanation for each phenomenon, the books do not attempt to reduce the mystique of each one, but instead offer a variety of possibilities to allow readers to come to their own conclusions.Product Description:
