In Lord Byron's lifetime, details of his travels were widely known through poems set in different countries, ranging from his homes in Scotland and England, through Europe and the Middle East, to the South Pacific and into extra-terrestrial realms.

At the same time, a much more personal story was being shared with friends and family.

Even when divided from those whose company he most enjoyed, Byron continued to share his thoughts and feelings about wherever he happened to be.

His compulsive letter-writing reveals a strong desire to reach across space, to connect and reconnect with those elsewhere.

While his memoirs did not survive the ceremonial posthumous bonfire at 50 Albemarle Street, many of Byron's correspondents treasured every word in their possession.

This means a remarkable legacy has been preserved in letters that still seem as alive with conversational energy as when they were dashed off more than two hundred years ago.

Through Byron's letters and journals, we are still able to become mental travellers, transported across time and space by this brilliant, mercurial, magnificent and often maddening writer.
