“Eternal life lit by the stars” (poetry party) “But words are things, and a small drop of ink, Falling like dew, upon a thought, produces That which makes thousands, perhaps millions, think…” George Gordon Byron, Don Juan
George Gordon Byron (later Noel), 6th Baron Byron, (22 January 1788 – 19 April 1824), commonly known simply as Lord Byron, was an English poet and a leading figure in the Romantic movement. Among Byron's best-known works are the lengthy narrative poems Don Juan and Childe Harold's Pilgrimage and the short lyric She Walks in Beauty. Byron is regarded as one of the greatest British poets, and remains widely read and influential. He travelled widely across Europe, especially in Italy where he lived for seven years. Later in life, Byron joined the Greek War of Independence fighting the Ottoman Empire, for which many Greeks revere him as a national hero.He died one year later at age 36 from a fever contracted while inMessolonghi in Greece. George Gordon Byron (1788 -1824)
I would I were a careless child, Still dwelling in my Highland cave, Or roaming through the dusky wild, Or bounding o'er the dark blue wave…

Johann Wolfgang Goethe (1749-1832) Johan Wolfgang von Goethe was born in Frankfurt-am-Main in 1749. He studied law in Leipzig, and later in Strasburg. The most important period of his life may have been the moment he met William Shakespeare’s work and heard folk poetry. At the age of twenty-four Goethe wrote Goetz von Berlichingen, a play that begot him national fame, and established him as the Sturm und Drang movement. In a matter of weeks, from a biography of a noble highwayman of the German Peasant’s War, the play arose. In 1774, Goethe wrote The Sorrows of Young Werther, which was an even greater success, he would repeatedly rework it over the next dozen years.
Goethe's father, Johann Caspar Goethe, lived with his family in a large house in Frankfurt, then an Imperial Free City of the Holy Roman Empire. Though he had studied law in Leipzig and had been appointed Imperial Councillor, he was not involved in the city's official affairs. Goethe's mother used to read her children folk fairy-tales.
I had from childhood the singular habit of always learning by heart the beginnings of books, and the divisions of a work, first of the five books of Moses, and then of the 'Aeneid' and Ovid's 'Metamorphoses'. . . If an ever busy imagination, of which that tale may bear witness, led me hither and thither, if the medley of fable and history, mythology and religion, threatened to bewilder me, I readily fled to those oriental regions, plunged into the first books of Moses, and there, amid the scattered shepherd tribes, found myself at once in the greatest solitude and the greatest society.
In 1774, Goethe wrote The Sorrows of Young Werther, which was an even greater success.
”Byron and Goethe - the two names that predominate, and, come what may, ever will predominate, over our every recollection of the fifty years that have passed away. They rule; the master-minds, I might almost say the tyrants, of a whole period of poetry; brilliant, yet sad; glorious in youth and daring, yet cankered by the worm i` the bud, despair. They are the two representative poets of two great schools; and around them we are compelled to group all the lesser minds which contributed to render the era illustrious. ” Giuseppe Mazzini
