The author presents the English poet, Lord Byron, in a new light, focusing on his attraction to the East (specifically Greece, Turkey, and Albania), to Muslims, in general, and to Islam and its culture. The analysis and discussion of the poems are accompanied by a close examination of Byron's journals and letters, showing that Byron's intellectual and poetic development was closely tied to his experiences in and knowledge of the East. ​
