The Private Life of Lord Byron

Lord Byron starved himself compulsively for most of his life. His behaviour mystified his friends and other witnesses, yet he never imagined he was ill.

Instead, he rationalised his behaviour as a fight for spiritual freedom and made it the cornerstone of the heroic ideal which was central to his work, his life and his death. This fresh biography aims to better understand the man; to explore these neglected or misunderstood aspects of his private life in order to illuminate his writing, his idea of heroism, his relationships with women, and with Coleridge and Shelley.
