Essential Byron

“Essential Byron makes the case for his poetry, presented by Daisy Goodwin, dressed so seductively, she might be about to set off for an assignation with the lord herself. But as she flirts with his memory, you could at least imagine her being among the hysterical crowds that flocked to Byron´s lying in state when he died at the age of only 36.”

“I only wish I´d met him,” says Daisy Goodwin in this quick introduction to the work of the lusty lord. Seduced by his nanny at nine, dead in the early afternoon of his life. Francesca Annis, Rosamumd Pike and Jim Carter are among the readers.”
