charles always calls erik things like darling and love and erik gets embarrassed and insists “charles i am a very dangerous man you can’t call me things like that” and charles doesn’t even look up and says “yes dear”

Anonymous asked: You seem to know so much wonderful (and sometimes heartrending) trivia about the about Byron, the Shelleys, and other Romantic Poets. Are there any particular books, articles, documentaries etc. you would recommend for someone who wants to learn more about their world? And thank you for your beautiful blog with its exquisite combination of Shakespeare, Hugo, Romanticism and Lesbian Mermaids :-)

fjkla;fkjlas;jflkas;la what a nice message to get

really, anon, i am not as knowledgeable as i appear

if you want to learn about byron, there is genuinely nothing better in the world than byron: life and legend, by fiona maccarthy. (the only downside is that people are going to mock you for carrying around a huge biography of lord byron. rebuff them by telling them about the skull cup.)

also worthwhile is this film about byron (the link will take you to part 1 of 10 on youtube), with jonny lee miller as lord byron. it’s not as extensive and meticulously researched as the book, but a) what the hell is, and b) it’s got byron kissing a dude within five minutes and treats the incest with sensitivity, so.

really, the problem with byron is that a lot of things about his life just weren’t released by his estate until recently, because homophobia/biphobia/people still kind of think he’s kind of a dick/they’re not entirely wrong/you name it. so i’m not really sure if any biographies other than maccarthy’s are worth bothering with, tbh.

the only book on either of the shelleys i’ve acquired was really, genuinely awful, so i myself am still on the search for a good one. suggestions, guys?
