Sunday's Poem: “Having Confessed” by Patrick Kavanagh from Collected Poems. Sunday's Literary Notes: It’s the birthday of poet Lord Byron, born George Gordon Byron in London (1788). In 1812, he published two cantos of his first major work, Childe Harold’s Pilgrimage. One of his contemporaries wrote: “The effect was electric: his fame had not to wait for any of the ordinary gradations, but seemed to spring up like the palace of a fairy tale — in a night.” As Byron himself put it: “I awoke one morning and found myself famous.”
