Book Cover of Childe Harold's Pilgrimage: Canto IV

Childe Harold's Pilgrimage: Canto IV

by George Gordon Byron, Lord

It describes the travels and reflections of a world-weary young man, who is disillusioned with a life of pleasure and revelry and looks for distraction in foreign lands. In a wider sense, it is an expression of the melancholy and disillusionment felt by a generation weary of the wars of the post-Revolutionary and Napoleonic eras. The title comes from the term childe, a medieval title for a young man who was a candidate for knighthood.
