A presentation by:
Abby Schroeder, Freja Hagemann, Julianne Janz, Kassie Hesprich, Maria Crawford and Cheyenne Morgan. Lord George
Gordon Noel 6th
Baron Byron:
Fabulous Byron was born on January 22, 1788, in London, England.
He married Anna Isabella Milbanke on Jan 2, 1815.
On Dec 10, 1815 his daughter Augusta Ada was born.
He also had a daughter with his Mistress Claire Clairmont, Allegra was born in 1817. "The First Kiss of Love"
(1806) Summary "She Walks in
Beauty" (1814)
Summary The first stanza of the poem discusses a woman, whose beauty is amazing. Her beauty is described as having the best of both light and dark characteristics. It is that contrast that creates her supreme beauty. At the end of the stanza, religious connotations are brought in with the word “heaven.”
The second stanza is saying that her beauty is perfect and should not be changed, even a bit, or it will be ruined. As well, Byron believes that the woman's appearance reflects her inner thoughts. She is very sweet, innocent, and pure, thus her thoughts must be also.
The third stanza offers more praise for the woman. She is very good, and has done good deeds, as reflected by her smiles. It is suggested that she is above Earth, looking down, and is content. This again gives a religious connotation, implying that she is in heaven and is an angel. When we two parted is about how a man feels about a woman after she had left him. he starts out being madly in love with a woman. Initially, after the break, he is heart-broken but throughout the poem his felling turn cold towards the woman. It is also clear that this woman was married and having an affair, it also seems that his attachment to her was not widely known. This poem was written by Lord Byron in 1806, it is one of his earlier poems, which he wrote at the age of 17 or 18. It is not sure whom Byron wrote this poem about because by the time he was 17 he had already claimed to be "in love" numerous times so it is unknown who he was writing about being in love with. The main idea in the poem is that even though romantic love stories are very enticing and people like to hear about them, it is much better to experience that first kiss with the one who you love. Love stories have the ability to please you, but they are not able to move you like the real thing, which is the first kiss before falling in love. Even when the feeling of the first kiss is gone you will always remember the feelings you had at that moment in time, while the feelings from others' love stories will fade away and become irrelevant.
