Lord Byron manuscript material : 184 items 1807-1824

George Gordon Byron, Lord Byron, English Romantic poet known equally for his scandalous life as for his poetical genius. One of the most popular living poets of his day, his celebrity began with Childe Harold's Pilgrimage and rose to its apogee with Don Juan. The Lord Byron manuscript material in the Pforzheimer Collection consists of writings, correspondence, and various documents. The writings include: a holograph fair copy of Marino Faliero ; a draft of Don Juan, Canto XVI ; and a holograph manuscript of "Fare Thee Well," his poem to Lady Byron upon their separation. The bulk of the correspondence is dated between 1818 and 1823 and discusses publishing matters, family arrangements, and his involvement in the Greek war for independence. Correspondents include: Teresa Guiccioli, his last mistress; Leigh Hunt, poet, journalist, and literary critic; Thomas Moore, Irish poet and songwriter; Percy Bysshe Shelley, poet; and over seventy-five others. The documents include checks, a letter of credit, and a codicil to his last will and testament.
