The ultimate romantic
|Title:||The ultimate romantic||Authors:||Fermanis, Porscha||Permanent link:||http://hdl.handle.net/10197/11246||Date:||24-Jan-2009||Online since:||2019-12-11T09:25:16Z||Abstract:||Meeting Lord Byron in Athens in 1810, the 35-year-old Lady Hestor Stanhope, a well-known wit and traveller, was one of the few ladies (or gentlemen for that matter) not to fall under his spell. Byron’s effect on women was, by all accounts, extraordinary. Lady Rosebery almost fainted on meeting him; a demented Lady Caroline Lamb dressed up as a page boy in order to gain admission to his rooms and sent him a cutting of her pubic hair; and even his misused wife of only one year, Annabella Milbanke, was distressed by news of his death in 1824.||Type of material:||Review||Publisher:||The Irish Times||Keywords:||Biographies||Subject LCSH:||Byron, George Gordon Byron, Baron, 1788-1824||Other versions:||https://www.irishtimes.com/news/the-ultimate-romantic-1.1236738||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Not peer reviewed|
