Lady Byron Vindicated

Lady Byron Vindicated by Harriet Beecher Stowe

Lady Byron Vindicated by Harriet Beecher Stowe

The True Story Of Lady Byron’s Life, a brief exposé of the famous poet Lord Byron’s sordid private life which had led to a separation from his wife and drove him out of England, as told to her by Lady Byron herself before her death. Stowe wrote this article long after Lady Byron’s death, when Lady Byron‘s impeccable reputation was being smeared across Europe by Byron’s influential literary friends, and her trustees were doing nothing to defend her. Criticism against the article raged in the American and European press and damaged the Atlantic’s circulation, but Stowe remained confident, and the following year, she expanded her article into this full-length exposé. Sprinkled throughout with Byron’s biting poetry, Lady Byron’s and other notable correspondence, and Stowe’s outrage at the way women were belittled and treated as property during the Victorian period, the invectives in this book are, even by modern standards, intense!

Written by a Catholic in 1849, this biography of the pope appeared twenty years after the English Parliament passed “The Roman Catholic Relief Act of 1829.” “The following sketch was written to supply what its author felt persuaded could not fail to interest his fellow Catholics in England; namely, some account of the only English Pope who ever reigned. In it he does not pretend to any novelty of research; but simply to present a connected narrative of such events in the history of Pope Adrian IV. as have hitherto lain broken and concealed in old chronicles, or been slightly touched for the most part in an incidental way by modern writers
