Childe Harold's Pilgrimage is a fascinating portrait of 19th c. Europe – disillusioned and ravaged by the wars of the post-revolutionary and Napoleonic eras. Our protagonist, whose breathtaking journey eerily echoes Byron's own life story, forgoes his destiny back home for the exciting unknown – the nature of humanity and the transformative effects of travel burst through the pages in four powerful cantos of Spenserian stanzas. Here is the poem that set Byron on his meteoric rise to fame in London society. Jamie Parker is best known for his roles in the films The History Boys and Valkyrie and the TV drama Van Gogh: Painted with Words, among others. His theatre credits include Henry IV Parts I & II and Henry V at Shakespeare’s Globe and Rosencrantz & Guildenstern are Dead at the Haymarket Theatre. He has also read Hardy’s Far From the Madding Crowd for Naxos AudioBooks.
