Venetia
by

Publisher: Henry Colburn
ISBN/ASIN: 1598186736
Number of pages: 400

Description:
This story is extremely well written and engaging. It mangles and entangles the histories of Lord Byron and Percy Bysshe Shelley so it can not be said to be a true story, but it is a thinly veiled fiction about these two poets.
