Percy Bysshe Shelley died in July 1822, but Lord Byron would follow him two years later. Byron settled in Venice in November 1816 and fell in love with the twenty–one–year–old Teresa Guiccioli. He continued to produce new work, finishing Manfred after his arrival in Italy followed by a whole series of more austere dramas, including the highly controversial Cain. Despite his evolving thought on how poetry should be written, Byron completed the fourth and final canto of Childe Harold's Pilgrimage while he was in Venice. He also showed strong interest in the outbreak of the Greek war of independence in 1821. In July 1823 he went to Greece. On April 19, 1824 he died of fever at the age of thirty–six.
