In this talk, Dr Charlotte May will discuss Byron’s complex and occasionally confrontational relationship with fellow poet Samuel Rogers.

Byron’s relationship with Rogers began with appreciation for the doors that Rogers could open for him in society as well as his poetry, but ended with Byron writing in a “private” letter to John Murray that Rogers was ‘the Cancer of his Species’. This talk charts the development of this fascinating relationship, and how Byron’s relationship with Rogers sheds light on two of the best known figures of literary society in the Romantic period.
