Miranda Seymour talks about her latest book in which she draws on fascinating new material to reveal the ways in which Lord Byron,long after his death, continued to shape the lives and reputations of the mathematical Annabella Milbanke whom he married in 1815, and their daughter the future Ada Lovelace. Ada, who never knew her father, predicted, as nobody would do for another century, the dawn of our modern computer age and explored the analysis of distant stars.
Miranda Seymour is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Literature and has been a visiting professor at Nottingham Trent University. She began writing as a historical novelist, moving from fiction into biography during the 1980s with her remarkable group portrait of Henry James and his literary circle: A Ring of Conspirators. Her other biographies include that of Otteline Morrell and Robert Graves & Her Life of Mary Shelley.
‘the most dazzling life of a female writer to have come my way for a decade’ Financial Times.
