George Gordon Byron
The Works of Lord Byron, (Complete), Vol. 3 of 4 (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from The Works of Lord Byron, (Complete), Vol. 3 of 4 Tn: following drama is taken entirely ¿ow the German's Tale, Kmitzmr, published many years ago in Lee's Canterbury Tales; written (i believe) by two sisters, of whom one furnished only this story and another, both of which are considered superior to the remainder of the collection. I have adopted the characters, plan, and even the language, of many parts of this story. Some of the characters are modified or altered, a few of the names changed, and one character (ida of Stralenheim) added by my self: but in the rest the original is chie¿y followed. When I was young (about fourteen, I think.) I first read this tale, which made a. Deep impression upon me; and may, indeed, be said to contain the germ of much that I have since written. I am not sure that it ever was vei'y popular; or, at any rate, its popularity has since been eclipsed by that of other great writers in the same depart ment. But I have generally found that those who had read it, agreed with me in their estimate of the singular power of mind and conception which it developes. I should also add conception, uther than execution for the story might, perhaps, have been developed with greater advantage. Among those whose opinions agreed with mine upon this story, I could mention some very high names; but it is not necessary, nor indeed of any use, for every one must judge according to his own feelings. I merely refer the reader to the original story, that he may see to what extent I have borrowed from it; and em not unwilling that he should find much greater pleasure in perusing it than the drama which is founded upon its contents.
