Caro: The Fatal Passion


by Henry Blyth. Coward, McCann & Geoghegan, $8.95. As the loves of Lord Byron went, Lady Caroline Lamb was no worse than a moderate nuisance, but by non-Byronic standards she was a very troublesome female. She was also interesting, for she undoubtedly possessed brains and talent that went largely unused. She deserves a better biography than Mr. Blyth has provided. His idea of explaining these Regency eccentrics is to label the whole collection “immature.”
