Between astonishment and grief, the writer is tearless. The narrative is built around a doomed love triangle, composed of the Giaour, a nameless Christian, Hassan and one of his wives, Leila. He died too in the byrn broil, A time that heeds nor pain nor toil; One cry to Mahomet for aid, One prayer to Allah all he made: This is such a dark and twisted poem that sees a Byronic hero in his full force.

I had — Ah! One bound he made, and gained the sand Already at his feet hath sunk The foremost of the prying band A gasping head, a quivering trunk ; Another falls but round him close A swarming circle of his foes: But this was taught me by the dove, To die — and know no second love.

I grant my love imperfect, all That mortals by the name miscall; Then deem it evil, what thou wilt; But say, oh say, hers was not Guilt!
