1820. Irish poet and friend of Lord Byron and P.B. Shelley, Moore's works range from lyric to satire, from prose romance to history and biography. Moore was also a good musician and skillful writer of songs, which he set to Irish tunes, mainly of the 18th century. Moore's bestselling epic poem, Lalla Rookh, is a kind of miniature Arabian Nights in subject matter, setting and form. The story relates the journey of the princess Lalla Rookh from Delhi to Kashmir, where she is to marry the young King of Bucharia whom she has never met. From its first appearance Lalla Rookh inspired the romantic imaginations of artists, dramatists and composers alike with its heady combination of drama, poetry, romance, pathos, fantasy, horror and exoticism.
