Author's Notes: "Lord Byron--Genius Unchained" is a Double Dactyl formatted write that I wrote as a tribute to Lord Byron because of his celebrated status as the "Highest of High Romantics" during the early 19th century. He became, over time, a virtual synonym for the greatest of lovers despite his sexual peccadilloes and blatant affectation for Narcissism. This poem touches specifically on his declared destiny to die a soldier's death, which he did in 1824, at age 36 in Missolonghi in western Greece during the Greek War of Independence from the Ottoman Empire. This final event in his short, mercurial and brilliant life set the stage for him dying young and made his legend imperishable. (Gary Bateman - May 6, 2015) (Double Dactyl)
