About the Author

A native New Yorker, Benita Eisler was educated at Smith and Harvard. She has worked as an art editor, reporter, on-camera correspondent, and producer of arts programming for pubic television. Her interest in the varieties of artistic expression is reflected in her teaching and writing: She has taught the nineteenth- and twentiethcentury novel at Princeton and is the author of biographies of Georgia O'Keeffe and Alfred Stieglitz; Lord Byron, and Frรฉdรฉric Chopin. She lives in Manhattan.


"Quite simply the best life of Byron we have."
"A captivating narrative.... Eisler manages to infuse cultural history with heartbreak."
"[Written] with poetic insight and admirable brevity, combining analytical skill with that of a novelist."
" admirably full and well-balanced account of an extraordinarily crowded and dramatic life."
"Lively...vividly told.... A much more detailed and illuminating account of the poet's life than any previous book."
"The way these artists forged volatile lives and stellar careers is presented in vibrant, enthralling detail...Fascinating, well-researched, and well-written."
"No rendition is better than Benita Eisler's...Prodigious research, excellent writing and an intuitive, psychologically rich analysis...Eisler animates not only the lives of her protagonists: she also suggests new and meaningful ways to understand their art. It is biography at its best."
