Lord Byron (1788–1824) set young women’s hearts aflutter with his poetry and his “mad, bad, and dangerous to know” reputation (as stated by his jilted but married lover, Lady Caroline Lamb). This lithograph pictures Byron with another married lover, Marianna Segati, of whom he wrote in 1817: “My dear Tom, I really cannot go on; there is a pair of black eyes looking over my shoulder so that I must turn and answer them instead of you.”
