The Last Attachment

The Story of Byron and Teresa Guiccioli

by Iris Origo


Currently out of stock


The last – and arguably most intense – love affair of one of the greatest British poets

Teresa Guiccioli was just nineteen, and recently married to a jealous husband nearly three times her age, when she met Byron. He was one of the most infamous men in Europe; she was an inexperienced but beautiful provincial noblewoman. For the next four years, until Byron went to Greece, this formed the basis of a passionate, scandalous, and very intense love affair.

Iris Origo, bestselling biographer and author of War in Val d’Orcia, was the first to have access to over a hundred love letters and family papers from the time of this affair. She uses these to illustrate the moving story, told with authority and clarity, of Byron and Teresa’s turbulent romance.
