In the spring of 1816, Lord Byron was the greatest poet of his generation and the most famous man in Britain, but his personal life was about to erupt. Fleeing his celebrity, he sought refuge in Europe, taking his young doctor with him. That summer another literary star also arrived in Geneva. With Percy Bysshe Shelley came his lover, Mary, and her step-sister, Claire. For the next three months, this party of young bohemians shared their lives, charged with sexual and artistic tensions.
