Book Description Lady Caroline Lamb, among Lord Byron's many lovers, stands out--vilified, portrayed as a self-destructive nymphomaniac--her true story has never been told. Now, Paul Douglass provides the first unbiased treatment of a woman whose passions and independence were incompatible with the age in which she lived. Taking into account a traumatic childhood, Douglass explores Lamb's so-called "erotomania" and tendency towards drug abuse and madness--problems she and Byron had in common. In thisportrait, she emerges as a person who sacrificed much for the welfare of a sick child, and became an artist in her own right. Douglass illuminates her novels and poetry, her literary friendships, and the lifelong support of her husband and her publisher,John Murray.
