In 1869, the Atlantic published Stowe's article, The True Story Of Lady Byron's Life, a brief exposĂ© of the famous poet Lord Byron's sordid private life which had led to a separation from his wife and drove him out of England, as told to her by Lady Byron herself before her death. Stowe wrote this article long after Lady Byron's death, when Lady Byron‘s impeccable reputation was being smeared across Europe by Byron's influential literary friends, and her trustees were doing nothing to defend her. Criticism against the article raged in the American and European press and damaged the Atlantic's circulation, but Stowe remained confident, and the following year, she expanded her article into this full-length exposĂ©. Sprinkled throughout with Byron's biting poetry, Lady Byron's and other notable correspondence, and Stowe's outrage at the way women were belittled and treated as property during the Victorian period, the invectives in this book are, even by modern standards, intense!
