Lord Byron's Lovers

"I have not loved the world, nor the world me;
I have not flatter'd its rank breath, nor bow'd
To its idolatries a patient knee, --
Nor coin'd my cheek to smiles, -- nor cried aloud
In worship of an echo; in the crowd
They could not deem me one of such; I stood
Amongst them, but not of them; in a shroud
Of thoughts which were not their thoughts, and still could,
Had I not filed my mind, which thus itself subdued.
I have not loved the world, nor the world me, --
But let us part fair foes;" (C.XIII)
-Lord Byron, "Childe Harold's Pilgrimage"

Byron has been a longtime hero of mine. This is perhaps his most haunting work to me.

Lord Byron's Lovers

[mood |enthralled]

I just stumbled on this community, and... I must say, this is possibly the most amazing thing EVER. (Whyyyyy hasn't it been updated for so long? D=)
I discovered Byron by chance around September of 2007. Maybe. It actually might have been earlier than that, I don't really know. But, I was in my school library, and I was looking for Tennyson. As I was browsing through the books, one caught my eye- it just said BYRON in big, bold, black letters.
I don't know why I picked it up. I really don't. I remember recognizing the name, but why I picked it up, I can't explain.
I opened it up, read the first poem ("When we two parted, in silence and tears"), and then just stood there, gaping like a moron.
Then I read it again.
And again.
I checked the book out, read it all that night, and the next day I went to the library and checked out a book of his complete poetry (although it's outdated, but it's all I've got right now), and Child of Passion, Fool of Fame by Benita Eisler. I was looking through the biography,  and when I saw his picture, it was just... yeesh. Can you say sexy? xD
It quickly grew into a ridiculously obsessive obsession. I mean, I can't even begin to describe how obsessed I am with him. @.@

And, I recently bought a print of a portrait of him from AllPosters, and it's on my wall so I can starrrrrreeeee!

As for the "we'd all totally be his lovers bit"... well, I gotta agree there. I don't want to do anything before marriage, but... honestly, if Byron came up to me- well, let's just say I wouldn't protest. xD

Lord Byron's Lovers
Of cloudless CLIMES and starry skies
And all that's BEST of dark and BRIGHT
Meet in her ASPECT and her EYES
Thus mellowed to that TENDER light
Which HEAVEN to daudy day denies

I love Byron. A lot.

Lord Byron's Lovers

when I did my Byron presentation for lit at school I passed around an enlarged and better-quality version of this icon. I told everybody to write the first word or phrase they could think of upon seeing the picture. I got a lot of "Sexy", "Hot", some white kid wrote "Sugar Daddy" (I crossed out the 'r'), and some girl wrote "Hot Mamma Jamma" (whatever that means). somebody wrote "He gets laid more than Chuck Norris" (taken verbatim from my presentation) and one hot kid wrote "same nose as me" cuz they look kind of similar.

when you looked at my smexy Byron icon for the first time, what word or phrase immediately came to mind?
