One of the most thought-provoking characteristics of Byron’s inner self or essence perceptible in His Very Self and Voice by E.J. Lovell is what the social group observed during Byron’s time and frequently Byron by himself as his irrational belief or his credulousness. In His Very Self and Voice are extracts from the demonstrations and testaments of some “hundred and fifty or sixty men and women who left a record of Byron’s conversation, now for the first time here collected.” Several of these men communicate Byron’s delusions and misconceptions. These accounts are augmented by stanzas in letters and journals by Lord Byron concerning the theme in question. By a huge frame, additional Byroniana too has been examined and considered. In this paper, relevant stanzas from the Letters and Journals, His Very Self and Voice, Lord Byron’s Correspondence, and a handful of other accounts are engaged as randomly restricted bases and foundations for a specimen of Byron’s misbeliefs. Byron’s use of delusion or falsehood in his ingenious texts- a huge topic in focus by itself is not taken up for consideration here.
