From March to August 1812, Lady Caroline embarked on a well-publicized affair with Lord Byron. He was 24, she 26. The pair had first met in the Holland House. Originally known as Cope Castle, five miles south-west of London. She had spurned the attention of the poet on their first meeting, subsequently giving Byron what became his lasting epitaph when she described him as “mad, bad, and dangerous to know”. Lady Caroline Lamb claimed she coined the phrase after her first meeting with the poet at a society event in 1812, and this was later reported by her friend, Lady Morgan (in her memoirs), although, as Paul Douglass notes in his biography, there is no contemporary evidence to prove Lady Caroline actually created the famous phrase at the time. Byron’s response to her enticements (she wrote him a fan letter) was to visit her because of her high social status as a niece of the Duchess of Devonshire, and then to pursue her passionately. Lady Caroline and Lord Byron publicly decried each other as they privately pledged their love over the following months. Byron referred to Lamb as “Caro”, which she adopted as her public nickname. After Byron broke things off, her husband took the disgraced and desolated Lady Caroline to Ireland. The distance did not cool Lady Caroline’s interest in the poet; she and Byron corresponded constantly during her exile. This spurred increasingly public attempts to reunite with her former lover. Matters came to a head at Lady Heathcote’s ball in early July 1813, when Byron publicly insulted Lady Caroline, who responded by breaking a wine glass and trying to slash her wrists. She did not seriously injure herself, due largely to the prompt intervention of her mother-in-law, and it is most unlikely that she had any suicidal intentions; but polite society was scandalised, and her mental stability was called into question. Byron himself referred to it as a theatrical performance: “Lady Caroline performed the dagger scene” a reference to Macbeth. Lady Caroline’s obsession with Byron would define much of her later life, as well as influencing both her and Byron’s works. They would write poems in the style of each other, about each other, and even embed overt messages to one another in their verse. After a thwarted visit to Byron’s home, Lady Caroline wrote Remember Me! Into the flyleaf of one of Byron’s books. He responded with the hate poem; Remember thee! Till Lethe quench life’s burning stream; Remorse and shame shall cling to thee, And haunt thee like a feverish dream! Ay, doubt it not. Thy husband too shall think of thee! By neither shalt thou be forgot, Thou false to him, thou fiend to me! Her cousin Harriet by then Lady Granville. , with whom Lady Caroline’s relationship had deteriorated after childhood, visited her in December 1816 and was so incredulous at her unrepentant behaviour that she ended her description of the visit in a letter to her sister with: I mean my visits to be annual.
