Throughout his life and long after, Lord Byron has been alternatively renowned and detested for his work and for the way he lived his life. Cast quite often as a misunderstood poet famous for promiscuity and biting satirical work, Byron’s poems and plays seem to encompass a range of emotions as he covers different topics. Unlike the majority of Romantic poets, Byron’s work does not often employ flowery language depicting scenery—he is upfront with his emotions. Instead of grounding his poems in nature to disguise his emotions, Byron uses other emotions to hide his anger beneath sadness or wit. Lord Byron was not a misunderstood, complicated man, but an angry man who did not know how to work through his anger, and thus many of his poems are just that: angry.
