263-4) Or, as we hear earlier, 'There was a laughing Devil in his sneer' (1, l. 223). ' (11, l. 195). His slaughter of the Muslims is done with relish. A troubled conscience is seen as a liability. ' (11, l. 335). Yet, despite all this, Byron wants to balance this dark picture of Conrad by two further characteristics: his utter faithfulness in his love for Medora, and the insistence that Conrad is 'naturally' good, but has been 'Warp'd by the world in Disappointment's school' (1, l. 253) Anyone who has read a life of Byron will recognise most of these characteristics of Conrad as, mutatis mutandis, shared by the author.

Nevertheless, Fate did end it rather suddenly. That wonderful life was soon finished. Yet how strong the scents were, what a wonderful bed we lay in, And what pleasures we gave our bodies. ('In the Evening') There is resentment here that the relationship has ended ('rather suddenly') but there is also acceptance. We get the same sort of mix in 'Before Time Changed Them', here given in full: They were both full of grief at their parting. They hadn't wanted it: circumstances dictated it. The need to earn a living forced one of them to go far away - New York or Canada.
