Childe Harold's Pilgrimage is a fascinating portrait of 19th-century Europe - disillusioned and ravaged by the wars of the postrevolutionary and Napoleonic eras. Our protagonist, whose breathtaking journey eerily echoes Byron's own life story, forgoes his destiny back home for the exciting unknown - the nature of humanity and the transformative effects of travel burst through the pages in four powerful cantos of Spenserian stanzas. Here is the poem that set Byron on his meteoric rise to fame in London society.

I had tried before to read Childe Harold many times but found it impossible to get into the heavy, long and old fashioned style. With this recording it breathes fresh air into what is a classic romantic masterpiece. Although I will say it gets a bit stodgy and slow in places making it hard to follow the olde English; as a poet myself I return to my favorite passages many times because they are so powerful.
