BYRON BEPPO PDF

Beppo marks Byron's first attempt at writing using the Italian ottava rima metre , which emphasized satiric digression. It is the precursor to Byron's most famous and generally considered best poem, Don Juan. The poem tells the story of a Venetian lady, Laura, whose husband, Giuseppe or "Beppo" for short , has been lost at sea for the past three years. According to Venetian customs she takes on a Cavalier Servente , simply called "the Count". When the two of them attend the Venetian Carnival , she is closely observed by a Turk who turns out to be her missing husband.

In Beppo the garrulous narrator tells the story of how Beppo short for Guiseppe disappears on a sea voyage, how his wife Laura assumes he's dead and, after a perfunctory period of mourning, takes a dilettante called The Count as a lover.

Beppo then turns up again, recounts how he converted to Islam and lived as a pirate, is reconciled with Laura and comes to a pragmatic agreement with the Count. The story, however, is much less important to the poem than the many digressions, in which the narrator discusses the differences between Italy and England, gives advice to travellers, and generally displays his accomplishment as a gregarious raconteur.

G eorge Orwell once said of saints that they should be judged guilty until proven innocent. Byron felt the same about poets. But his problem with poets ran deeper than a dislike of certain examples of the breed. Byron occasionally found better things to do; he died pursuing them.
