Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Origo here chronicles a love triangle among the poet, Countess Teresa Gamba Guiccioli, and the lady's much older husband, who apparently wasn't too happy about sharing his 19-year-old wife. Origo was the first to have access to the Gamba family's archive, so much of this 1949 biography was new material when first published by Scribner. It's probably still the most in-depth study of this particular chapter in the poet's unusual life. Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.\
Miranda Seymour
As a biography of Teresa, containing details fo Byron's political life in Italy, The Last Attachment remains useful and pleasurable. Origo's descriptions of the Gamba family homes are as delicious as anything in Turgenev.
