Hours of Idleness was Byron's first book of poems published when he was only 19. In it he experiments with various poetic styles and provides translations of, and poems written in imitation of, earlier mainly classical poets.

The book received strong criticism on publication to which Byron responded with his poem English Bards and Scotch Reviewers.
