Tedious Moralist 4 Letters – Three years after Byron’s death, Contessa Teresa Giaccioli, the poet’s last, longest, and perhaps most intimate attachment, wrote to Charles F. Berry that his letters were “treasures of goodness, love, and intelligence, for which he There are reasons that I cannot tell the public now. But thirty years later, Leah was enraged by reading Hunt’s abusive book,
, he told John Murray that he did not care what the consequences might be to his own reputation, “so long as no document or letter is lost, which will show the great and kind heart of Lord Byron in its true light.” can And finally, on his deathbed in Italy in 1873, he is said to have expressed his wish with his pig.

His articles should be published. “The more Byron is known,” he said, “the better he will be loved.”
Three Hundred Years Along The Pasquotank
Fifty years have passed since then. And now, thanks to Teresa’s great-nephew, Count Carlo Gamba, to whom she left her village in Setimello and all its contents, Teresa’s papers and treasures have finally been revealed. The treasures—Byron’s “relics,” as she called them—are still in the carved mahogany box in which Teresa kept them: a locket containing Teresa’s hair, worn by Byron when she died, and which Augusta Lee had sent back to Teresa; The little pictures that lovers exchange when parting; a fragment of the wall of the room in the Palazzo Gamba where they met; Byron’s handkerchief and a piece of his shirt, and a broken rose with petals, a tree branch and a small acorn, from Newstead Abbey.
American by birth. IRIS ORIGO spent much of her childhood in Florence, and since her marriage to the Marchese Antonio Origo, she has done her writing in southern Tuscany and Rome. His books include a biography of Leopardi, with a foreword by Jorge Santayana;
A Short Study of Byron’s Daughter; and a diary of his experiences on a Tuscan farm during the German occupation.
The essays in this collection have proved to be as interesting and interesting as the most careful biographer could hope for in a collection. They include not only Byron’s 156 love letters, mostly in Italian, to Teresa, and some of her replies, but Teresa’s “V. de Lord Byron”—an unpublished account of her life in Italy, which she gave to her grandfather. And wrote in thought. There is a lot of interest to be published during his lifetime.

There are also documents from the Guiccioli trials, which detail the complicated circumstances that led to Teresa’s separation from her husband, and letters from Pietro Gamba to his sister from Greece. , besides which there are several letters from Shelley, Lady Blessington. , Lamartine, and many others. In short, we finally have the full story of Byron and Teresa Giacoli.
At the time of her meeting with the poet, Teresa was eighteen years old, and little more than a year had been married to Conte Alessandro Guiccioli, forty years her senior, a sensuous and amorous old gentleman of Ravenna. Byron, on his side, was more adamant about a lasting and deeper commitment. After two years in Venice, for all his love and folly, he found himself, more than ever, alone. Amongst so many mistresses and endless companions, watched with so many inquisitive eyes, pursued with so many wide arms, he knew that he was still a foreigner – and slowly he tried to become one. also left He almost completely withdrew from “good Venetian society”. He rode the Lido with his English friends. He loved when he had to. But he was as deprived of any human companionship as he lived in the Sahara.
The story of his relationship with Teresa is not an entirely happy story, and it is difficult to tell it objectively. There is a temptation to take sides: either to portray Byron as an unscrupulous cad, to seduce a beautiful young woman who fell deeply in love with him, to laugh at him in his letters to his friends; And gradually cooled down, to leave him. And alone; Or to portray Teresa as a designing maniac who, fed up with her elderly husband and her dreary provincial life, throws herself at Byron’s head until he is forced to pursue a runaway love affair. “Romance in Anglo fashion”
With these new papers before us, none of these simple versions will do. The actors also often speak out of part, and the story that unfolds is full of tension and contradictions. Besides, there are few points which, in my mind, are still unclear. I am still not quite sure about Count Guiccioli’s intentions. I sometimes don’t know what Byron means; I’m not always sure when Teresa is, or isn’t, telling the truth. The reader must also guess, and draw his own conclusions. I have only tried to fill in the background—to supplement the story with other letters of Byron’s time or accounts of his contemporaries, and to give such information as may seem necessary about the people, the environment, and the local history. . I have carefully avoided including any fanciful detail or touch of “local color”; Any information here can be verified by some records.

Because it’s the papers—written, passionate love letters, harrowing police reports, formal church decrees, gossipy letters and diaries—that must be told. They provide a singular and unvarnished account of the daily life of this small group of people one hundred and thirty years ago. Their passionate protests, their jokes, their retreats and lies, their plans and disappointments, all that was the most private aspect of their lives—they are now laid before us in brutal detail.
Here is the story of two passionate, unstable men – one of them a great poet and a very strange man, the other a young woman of extraordinary vitality and willpower. They loved each other; They argued; They mercilessly trampled those who stood in their way. Of the two, surprisingly, it was Byron who sometimes played the role of moralist. Teresa, for all her convent school training, appears to have been unaware all along that there was a moral problem. They committed themselves, and they went back again. One of them was often unfaithful, the other sometimes unfaithful. Each of them in turn, Byron in Ravenna, Teresa in Pisa in the English realm—for the sake of the other, adapts to the ways of a bewildered and alienated society. As time went by, one of them became complacent, the other became disillusioned. But all the time they were unusually alive. They held everyone who came near them. In these letters, they are still alive.
These essays shed light on an aspect of Byron’s character that has hitherto been little known: they show him living in a city.
Setting And the extent to which this new environment influenced and changed him is revealed in a way that is not only interesting but sometimes frustrating.

And galleryd and conversed for some months, and then home again—but their families, friendships and enmities, and loves, councils, and correspondences, in a part of Italy, scarcely known to foreigners; And has been among all these classes, from Conte to Contadino. But at that time neither his friends nor his biographers paid much attention to this matter. His life in Ravenna has been considered only as part of all the paraphernalia of intrigue and romance in which the historical part of his nature delighted – one more scene in the great Italian performance, such as the quarrel with Farnarina or the swimming across the Venetian lagoon. . Now it is revealed that this was not the whole truth.
Byron’s letters are the letters of a foreigner, but they are indirectly the letters of a man, and they contain some interesting hints as to where and how he learned his Italian. What is disconcerting about these early letters is that the clarity of their sentences and their idiomatic tradition are almost identical to the completely non-Baryonic tradition of passion. At first, indeed, it is so marked that one wonders whether Byron is not merely overplaying his part; Perhaps, in his desire to be perfect
In the Italian style, he has copied some sentences directly from the manual of a polite Venetian letter writer – or allowed not just one word (as he clearly admits), but whole sentences, as suggested by Lega Zembelli. Are done, the priest became the secretary. As the correspondence continues, he allows himself a lighter touch, more familiar with his own. But I think the reader will agree that the author of these letters is an unknown Byron.
For one thing, he is more deeply involved. in case
