Had a little nosey at your profile after enjoying "Alas, Love..." so much and couldn't help but notice the books you're reading.
I absolutely recommend "Records of Shelley, Byron and the Author" by Edward John Trelawny. It's an account of Trelawny's time in the close circle of the two poets from their time in exile in Italy, through Shelley's death, to Byron's death in Misolonghi and Trelawny's part in the Greek war for independence from the Ottoman empire. If you can get passed the author's hero-worship of the two poets and his own self-aggrandisement, it's a really intriguing look at the personalities of Byron, and to a greater extent, Shelley.
Anyway, sorry for the unsolicited diatribe- happy trails!
Oh, Hi! And, WELCOME to P&P!
Thank you for the recommendation. I shall try to see about finding the book and glancing at it, soon, I hope. I appreciate your unsolicited suggestion and flavour of the book. I was reading the others a year ago, online, and have left off. I guess I should go to the library and see if I can find all of them. Any, thanks again very much! Glad to meet you.
Thanks for repling
