|Plot Summary of Byron: The Years of Fame|
|" Peter Quennell's biography covers Byron's life from 1811 to 1816. He begins with the poet's arrival back in England after his European tour. "Childe Harold" had been published and he found himself a celebrity. Blessed with a beautiful face and his new found fame he also found himself the object of the attentions of good many women. The book talks about his affair with Lady Caroline Lamb, his marriage to Annabella Milbanke, and his possible relationship with his half sister, Augusta Leigh. It ends with the scandals about his activities that forced him to leave the country."
