“I awoke one morning and found myself famous.”

“I awoke one morning and found myself famous.” Lord Byron was born on this day in 1788. See Thomas Phillips’ portrait of the pin-up poet, dressed in Albanian costume, on display in the National Portrait Gallery, London, Room 18.  I intend to visit this Saturday.
