Book with Byron as a Character
- The Twelfth Enchantment
I have not read this book ./ Amazon says there are 144 references to
Byron in it. He is one of the strong secondary characters.
I did see some of the book where it seems that Byron was presented
as something other than the the Devil INcarnate.
- A review I came across
*One miserable woman encounters Lord Byron and her life changes forever
in this delightful fictional recreation of English history. *
'The Twelfth Enchantment' by David Liss. 416 p. Random House. $26.
One disaster after the next leads Lucy Derrick to believe she is
destined for misery. Readers can't help but sympathize as Lucy struggles
to free herself from her wretched uncles, forced marriage, and feelings
of guilt and sorrow brought on by the passing of her sister and
subsequently, her father. When Lucy is all but ready to embrace her
sorrow, a distraught, but charming Lord Byron stumbles into the picture
with a message that could change the course of her life forever. Author
Davis Liss's juxtaposition of a modern day metamorphosis with Lucy's
ever-changing destiny is indeed metaphoric and enthralling for readers.
