Seite 48 - Arno for him. But the material part of my visit consists in a message which he desires me to give you, and which, I think, ought to add to your determination — for such a one I hope you have formed, of restoring your shattered health and spirits by a migration to these ' regions mild of calm and serene air.
Seite 111 - I see before me the gladiator lie : He leans upon his hand ; his manly brow Consents to death, but conquers agony, And his drooped head sinks gradually low ; And through his side the last drops, ebbing slow From the red gash, fall heavy, one by one, Like the first of a thunder-shower ; and now The arena swims around him ; he is gone, Ere ceased the inhuman shout which hailed the wretch who won.
Seite 64 - Byron to assist me in sending a remittance for your journey ; because there are men, however excellent, from whom we would never receive an obligation, in the worldly sense of the word ; and I am as jealous for my friend as for myself.
Seite 16 - Hunt is an extraordinary character, and not exactly of the present age. He reminds me more of the Pym and Hampden times — much talent, great independence of spirit, and an austere yet not repulsive aspect.
Seite 46 - Lord Byron and I are excellent friends, and were I reduced to poverty, or were I a writer who had no claims to a higher station than I possess — or did I possess a higher than I deserve, we should appear in all things as such, and I would freely ask him any favour. Such is not the case.
Seite 70 - Particular circumstances, or rather, I should say, particular dispositions in Lord Byron's character, render the close and exclusive intimacy with him in which I find myself intolerable to me ; thus much, my best friend, I will confess and confide to you.
Seite 40 - When I saw Rimini in MS, I told him that I deemed it good poetry at bottom, disfigured only by a strange style. His answer was, that his style was a system, or upon system, or some such cant; and when a man talks of system, his case is hopeless: so I said no more to him, and very little to anyone else.
Seite 67 - Hunt had urged me more than once to ask you to lend him this money. My answer consisted in sending him all I could spare, which I have now literally done. Your kindness in fitting up a part of your own house for his accommodation I sensibly felt, and willingly accepted from you on his part, but, believe me, without the slightest intention of imposing, or, if I could help it, allowing to be imposed, any heavier task on your purse. As it has come to this in spite of my exertions, I will not conceal...
Seite 105 - Hunt would have made a fine writer, for he has a great " deal of fancy and feeling, if he had not been spoiled by " circumstances. He was brought up at the Blue-coat " foundation, and had never till lately been ten miles from " St. Paul's. What poetry is to be expected from such a " course of education? He has his school, however, and " a host of disciples. A friend of mine calls ' Rimini ,, " Nimini Pimini ; and
Seite 50 - Marino Faliero" is a drama, the "Cenci" is not— but that between ourselves. Lord Byron is reformed, as far as gallantry goes, and lives with a beautiful and sentimental Italian lady, who is as much attached to him as may be. I trust greatly to his intercourse with you, for his creed to become as pure as he thinks his conduct is. He has many generous and exalted qualities, but the canker of aristocracy wants to be cut out.
