Yes! It struck me looking more like Byron too. It is a beautiful portrait though...

Very nice, but I'm sure I've seen that before somewhere and it isn't Byron or Keats :?

I don't know - maybe it is Keats, or it even looks a bit like Hunt :?

Sorry. The page I found it on identified it as Keats. I'd like to know who it is anyway. He doesn't look like Byron to me, as he lacks the animal sex appeal.

And is that to say Keats *wasn't* a short, sexy hunk? :lol:

OK, maybe Keats didn't have *animal* sex appeal. . .maybe aesthetic sex appeal? ;)

Am I just crazy or does Lord Byron look a lot like Tom Hanks (in his younger days)?

What with that burning and yearning?? The way he used the word "delicious" all the time?? His low, rich voice and soft silky hair?? John Keats invented sex appeal, ladies. :wink: :lol:

Oy! I'd like to think Lord Byron was a little smarter than Tom Cruise. :roll:
Though of course I don't know Tom Cruise at all--from all appearances, he looks like the ultimate mimbo. Lord Byron was just a cad. ;)
