  • Love Poem About A Beautiful Woman
    948 words
    "She Walks in Beauty" George Gordon Noel Byron's poem titled, "She Walks in Beauty", plainly put, is a love poem about a beautiful woman and all of her features. The poem follows a basic iambic tetrameter with an unaccented syllable followed by an accented syllable that allows for a rhythm to be set by the reader and can be clearly seen when one looks at a line: She walks / in beau / ty like / the night.

He was the most colorful of the English 'Romantics' poets, whose poetry captured the imagination of Europe. Gordon described his work at one time as the "lava of the imagination", which implies that it was the uncontrolled outpouring of his mind.
