      Well they say He was mad, bad and dangerous to know I say the same you will love everything wrtten by him from short and beautiful She walks in beauty to epic Don Juan Just read it and love it.

      Byron s poems never fail to delight I read this collection as part of a Late Romantic Literature course.
