Lord Byron book presentation at John Cabot University in Rome.
26 Sept. Rome's John Cabot University presents the book The Sour Fruit. Lord Byron, Love & Sex by Vincenzo Patanè (and edited by JCU Prof. James Schwarten) at 18.30 on Wednesday 25 September with Prof. Masolino D’Amico of the Università degli Studi Suor Orsola Benincasa – Naples.
The Sour Fruit. Lord Byron, Love & Sex looks at the poet’s now generally acknowledged bisexuality in all its aspects, from his fleeting liaisons to his love-affairs, female (his half-sister Augusta, Caroline Lamb and Teresa Guiccioli) and male (John Edleston, Nicolo Giraud and Loukas Chalandritsanos).
The book’s original approach provides unusual and fascinating insights, notably into Byron’s homosexuality, hitherto relatively unexplored, and reveals a more truthful picture of the poet.
The reading takes place in the Aula Magna Regina in the university's Guarini Campus, and guests will be required to show photo identification at the door. RSVP here.
