George Gordon, Lord Byron’s Calling Card

What is the poet’s signature style?

The father of all emo rockers

That's right, you heard it here first: Byron is the father of all angst-ridden poets and emo singers and songwriters. Unattainable beauty, unrequited love, forbidden love, hopeless love… these are Byron's bread and butter. So any time you come across a Romantic-era poem with a lot of highfalutin language and beautiful images that describe the speaker's despair and undying love for someone who doesn't know he exists, chances are you're reading a poem by Byron.
