In 1816, scandal over his womanizing forced Byron to leave England and seek refuge on the continent. Together with some of his comrades and the woman he was currently attached to, Claire Clairemont, he ended up in Italy, where he also joined up with the poet Shelley and his wife Mary. The writers had a good effect on each other, all producing very fine work during their time together. Perhaps the most famous product was Mary Shelley’s “Frankenstein,” which she says was written when they all agreed to try their hand at horror stories.
