Hope's Anastasius








Lord Byron, in a conversation with the Countess of Blessington, said
that he wept bitterly over many pages of Anastasius, and for two
reasons: first, that he had not written it; and secondly, that Hope
had; for it was necessary to like a man excessively to pardon his
writing such a book; as, he said, excelling all recent productions, as
much in wit and talent as in true pathos. Lord Byron added, that he
would have given his two most approved poems to have been the author of
Anastasius.
