They were joined in mid January by the flamboyant adventurer Edward John Trelawny. Byron had placed his daughter Allegra in a convent school in Bagnacavallo in March ; on April 20, she died there at the age of five, after a brief illness. Byron contributed to each of its four issues published in and He was also proceeding rapidly with Don Juan. After the erotic seraglio scenes in the sixth canto, he began to exhibit a new gravity.
In late September, the remnants of the Pisan Circle relocated to Genoa. Within a week of his arrival, Byron had completed the 10th canto of Don Juan , which carries the hero to England, and started the 11th, with its satire on the shallowness and hypocrisy of the English aristocracy. John Hunt was prosecuted for libeling the late king; he remained the publisher of The Liberal but turned printing duties over to the less radical printer C.
Byron responded by withdrawing from Murray and turning to John Hunt as his publisher. As the title suggests, Byron voices disillusionment with the modern era, his targets being both political and economic. In May he was elected to the London Greek Committee, recently formed to aid the struggling insurgents. After a reluctant farewell to Teresa, he made good on his offer of personal assistance to the patriots by sailing from Genoa on July 16, bound for Leghorn and Greece.
He was accompanied by Pietro Gamba, Trelawny, and a considerable sum of money and medical supplies for the Greek cause; he also packed gold and scarlet uniforms and heroic helmets for their landing on Greek shores. On August 3, they reached the island of Cephalonia, then under British protection. Byron did not immediately commit himself to any faction, preferring to wait for signs of unity in the Greek effort.
In November Byron agreed to loan 4, pounds to the Greek fleet for its activation. In March , John and H.
On April 9, having been soaked by a heavy rain while out riding, Byron suffered fever and rheumatic pains. By the 12th he was seriously ill. Repeated bleedings further debilitated him. On Easter Sunday, he entered a comatose state. In memorial services throughout the country, he was proclaimed a national hero of Greece. His death proved effective in uniting Greece against the enemy and in eliciting support for its struggle from all parts of the civilized world.
In October British, French, and Russian forces destroyed the Turkish and Egyptian fleets at Navarino, assuring Greek independence, which was acknowledged by the sultan in The fame to which Byron awoke in London in was spread rapidly throughout Europe and the English-speaking world by scores of translations and editions. His influence was pervasive and prolonged. His spirit animated liberal revolutionary movements: most of the officers executed following the unsuccessful Decembrist uprising in Russia were Byronists; the Italian patriot Giuseppe Mazzini associated Byron with the eternal struggle of the oppressed to be free.
Philosophically and stylistically, Byron stands apart from the other major Romantics. He was the least insular, the most cosmopolitan of them. Poetic imagination was not for him, as for them, the medium of revelation of ultimate truth. Yet, as Leslie A. The outstanding elements of his poetry both support his self-analysis and insure his enduring reputation.
As a major political and social satirist, he repeatedly denounces war, tyranny, and hypocrisy. But I have lived, and have not lived in vain: My mind may lose its force, my blood its fire, And my frame perish even in conquering pain, But there is that within me which shall tire Torture and Time, and breathe when I expire [.
