Of all the great poets of England, Byron is the most subjective, and the chief attraction of his poetry lies in the beauty of his descriptions.

Really speaking, his poetry is a brilliant and charming autobiography. “His energy, passion and power of vivid and richly coloured description, together with the incrust attaching to his wayward and unhappy career, must always make him loom large in the assembly of English poets.” In literature as well as in politics, Byron was “a revolutionary aristocrat.”
