What is the difference between lord byron and william wordsworth???

Do you mean the difference between them as people or in their writing?Both were poets from the same era - the Romantic Era. It appears that both writers disliked each others work.Wordsworth's poetry tended to hark back to a much older style of poetry - quite simple and direct in its message, whereas Byron used a lot of snide comedy in his work (such as Don Juan - very, very funny) I reckon that Byron tended to be a lot less moralic in his work - he created and tended to use a much more brooding 'Byronic Hero' in his work.
