Which two themes are covered in the poem "She Walks in Beauty"? A) beauty and evil B) beauty and virtue C) beauty and brains D) beauty and ugliness
The poem "She Walks in Beauty" is one of the most famous works of Lord George Gordon Byron. Although he had a notorious reputation as a womanizer, the woman in this poem is not represented as an object of sexual attraction but rather almost as an artistic masterpiece that has no equal. The woman Byron describes in the poem was probably Mrs. Anne Beatrix Wilmot, the wife of his first cousin. Sources suggest that he encountered her at a party and was so impressed by her beauty that he wrote the poem.
