Tell me about Lord Byron, /lit/
Why was he an important figure for romanticism?
Why was he famous?
he was great because he was skeptical of "Mr. Turdsworth and the pond poets" and brought romanticism back in line with the poetic tradition of Pope and Johnson
also because that man had some serious talent
I still don't like him as much as Wordsworth or Coleridge, both of whom were greater geniuses. Still, he was a great poet.
