He went to school in Dulwich, and then in 1801 to Harrow. In 1805 he went up to Trinity College, Cambridge, later gaining a reputation in London for his startling good looks and extravagant behaviour. His first collection of poems, Hours of Idleness (1807), was not well received, but with the publication of the first two cantos of Childe Harold\'s Pilgrimage (1812) he became famous overnight and increased this fame with a series of wildly popular \'Eastern Tales\'. In 1815 he married the heiress Annabella Milbanke, but they were separated after a year. Byron shocked society by the rumoured relationship with his half-sister, Augusta, and in 1816 he left England for ever. He eventually settled in Italy, where he lived for some time with Teresa, Contessa Guiccioli. He supported Italian revolutionary movements and in 1823 he left for Greece to fight in its struggle for independence, but he contracted a fever and died at Missolonghi in 1824. Byron\'s contemporary popularity was based first on Childe Harold and the \'Tales\', and then on Don Juan (1819-24), his most sophisticated and accomplished writing. He was one of the strongest exemplars of the Romantic movement, and the Byronic hero was a prototype widely imitated in European and American literature.<\/span>\"@en<\/a> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:description<\/a> \"A Fragment (\'When, to their airy hall, my fathers\' voice\') -- To Woman -- The Cornelian -- To Caroline (\'You say you love, and yet your eye\') -- English Bards and Scotch Reviewers: A Satire -- Lines to Mr Hodgson (Written on Board the Lisbon Packet) -- Main of Athens, ere we part -- Written after Swimming from Sestos to Abydos -- To Thyrza (Without a stone to mark the spot\') -- Childe Harold\'s Pilgrimage: A Romaunt, Cantos 1-11 -- Preface to the First and Second Cantos -- To Ianthe -- Canto the First -- Canto the Second -- Appendix to Canto the Second -- A Ode to the Framers of the Frame Bill -- Lines to a Lady Weeping -- The Waltz: An Apostrophic Hymn -- Remember Thee!
