Lines, On Hearing That Lady Byron Was Ill

by George Gordon Byron, Lord

Lord Byron, one of the most celebrated poets of the Romantic era, writes a chilling and bitter poem about his estranged wife, Lady Byron, after hearing that she is ill. George Gordon, Lord Byron's poem "Lines, On Hearing That Lady Byron Was Ill" is a complex and powerful expression of the poet's anger, resentment, and guilt over the breakdown of his marriage. The poem begins with a simple statement: "And thou wert sad—yet I was not with thee!" But as the poem unfolds, Byron's emotions become increasingly raw and exposed.
