Ralph Milbanke : Astarte: A Fragment of Truth Concerning Lord Byron

'Lunched with Ralph [Milbanke]. He has decided at last to publish the great Byron secret, and has drawn up the case against Byron and Mrs. Leigh in the form of a book called "Astarte." This is very ably done, but to my mind is marred by an introduction violently attacking Murray, the publisher, with whom he has quarrelled over Murray's recent edition of Byron's Works. I shall endeavour to get him to modify this; indeed, I think the whole thing might without much injustice to Lady Byron's memory be let to sleep. It is an ugly story, however told.''

Century: 1900-1945     Reader/Listener/Group: Wilfrid Scawen Blunt      Manuscript: Unknown
