CLIMATES

the sensual idealism of Shelley. His correspondence, which I annotated carefully, charmed me by its brusque and vigorous way of juxtaposing naked facts, just ascertain painters juxtapose pure colours. In the course of the summer I made a pilgrimage to Harrow where I saw Byron's name carved by him in the woodwork, the tomb of Peachey to which he used to come limping in order to meditate there, and the rose bush planted above the ashes of his daughter Allegra. Then I went to the far north of England to visit Newstead Abbey, Byibn's family seat. The monks' church was in ruins, the residential buildings, imposing and noble; and seeing these Gothic arches, these cloisters, these forests and this lake, one could understand the feelings of the small boy who, after the meanness of Aberdeen, suddenly found himself lord and master of this magnificent estate. Rarely have I seen clearer proof of the necessity for a biographer to see with his own eyes the surroundings in which his heroes have lived. Newstead gave me the key to Byron's childhood: what the poet's enemies were later to call snobbery was the tumultuous surprise of the penniless little Byron of Aberdeen faced by Lord Byron of Newstead.
At Annesley Hall, not far from Newstead, there still lived descendants of Mary Chaworth who had been Byron's first love. I asked to see the stairs, at the foot of which he had heard the girl say: `How could I be interested in that lame boya' and the door he had riddled with bullets when he practised pistol shooting. The owners of Annesley, Mr. and Mrs. Musters, did not know much about their ancestress. This was not the case with Lady Lovelace, widow of Byron's grandson, who guarded the family papers with vigilant piety. I knew that she owned countless precious documents and among them the journal of Lady Byron which contained the answer to the difficult question of incest. It was impossible to write the book without seeing this journal. Thanks to a mutual friend, Lady George Hamilton, I obtained permission to read it and went to spend two days at Ockham Park, which was the manor house of Lady Lovelace. There, straight through the night, by the light of two candles, I passionately deciphered this extraordinary document, the memoirs of a puritan who had been bold to the point of brazenness; they were so filled with life that I believed that I could see Byron walking with jerky steps and crying aloud between those walls of grey stone. After this reading it was no longer possible to doubt the incest. When I returned to London I went to see old Lord Ernle who (under his original name of Rowland
