?Anastatius  : work on travels in East

Mary Berry, in letter of August 1820: 'I have been reading after dinner, when it is too hot to write, "Anastatius." It is, as I had supposed, the substance of the MS. travels in the East which he long ago gave me to read. But in this new form so arranged! in such a pert style -- such an evident copy of Lord Byron's prose'.

Century: 1800-1849     Reader/Listener/Group: Mary Berry      Print: Book
