Client: Personal. Byronic is a type of character, named after the English Romantic poet Lord Byron. Byronic characters, incapable of love, or capable only of an impossible love, suffer endlessly. They are solitary, languid & their condition exhausts them. To feel alive it must be in the terrible exaltation of a brief & destructive action (Camus, The Rebel, p.49). This series was created to capture the dark mysticism of Byronic characters.
