CLIMATES

to recast the second half of the book and to turn it into a confession by Isabelle. It was thus, and not by deliberate design, that Climats acquired that appearance of a diptych which some have praised for its originality and others criticized for its artificial symmetry. Climats is, of all my books, the one that has had the greatest number of readers, not in the AngloSaxon countries but in France, in Germany, in Italy, in Spain, in Poland. Is this righti Is it the best? Is it a true picture of love? `I leave the decision to a lover and make no judgment.'

I finished Cliniats at Shalford Park in Surrey where we had spent the summer. In the spring of that year (1928) I had gone to Cambridge to deliver the Clark Lectures, an annual series of literary talks, which had been given in the preceding year by E. M. Forster and were given the year following by Desmond MacCarthy. Forster had chosen for his subject: Aspects of the Novel; I chose: Aspects of Biography, and I tried to give some idea of the biographer's technique. The series lasted for six weeks and during that time the lecturer lived in the Harcourt Rooms in Trinity College, imposing chambers, heavy with history, and took his meals at the High Table in the Hall beside the Master of Trinity who was the great physicist Sir Joseph Thomson.

Besides Sir Joseph, two other famous professors attended my lectures: the poet Housman and the historian Trevelyan. It was the latter who said to me one day when I had been talking about Lytton Strachey:
`The most important event in the history of English biography in the twentieth century is not the portrait of Queen Victoria by Strachey, it is the conquest of Strachey by Queen Victoria.'
Trinity College where I was living had been Byron's college, and I often went to the little pool at a bend in the river into which he loved to dive and cling to a rotten log on the bottom. I was gathering notes at that time to write a life of Byron. In Ariel I had sketched his portrait but I was not pleased with it. It seemed to me that I had been somewhat unjust to Byron and that perhaps his apparent cynicism was more generous than
