You should read the book, and not the review, of Medora Leigh. With a very few exceptions Hogg's Life is very interesting and admirably written. The most Offensive is his saying Shelley was incapable of speaking or distinguishing truth from falsehood.
You have so long nourished your hatred of Byron that you cannot judge him fairly. Moral diseases are transmitted as physical ones are, and Byron did exactly as his father had done. As to Lady Byron, she was a rabid fanatic; remorseless, revengeful as all bigots are. In short she was a Byron without his genius, or indeed any redeeming quality. Byron met his match in her.
It is well observed that we should not be vexed that we cannot make other people what we Wish them to be, for we cannot make ourselves what we wish to be. SO we must each follow our own path until death's hounds drive us into our burrows.
