The Giaour is a poem by Lord Byron first published in 1813 and the first in the series of his Oriental Tales. It is also one of the earliest fictional works to touch upon the subject of vampires (see vampire fiction). The Giaour proved to be a great success when published, consolidating Byron's reputation critically and commercially.
