A Literary Eclogue
Byron submitted this literary eclogue to his publisher in 1821 --- requesting it be publish anonymously, leaving his name out. In the letter with the submission, he wrote:
" . . . or I shall have all the old women in London about my ears --- since it sneers at the solace of their antient Spinisterstry . . ."Although his publisher did not publish it at that time, it was later published in The Liberal in 1823.
Note to Readers: In this version the format is changed, but the wording is the same as the published copies of The Blues. ( I found this style easier to read rather than being cramped in a two-column page with double and triple indentations. )
