Hervey was intrigued. ’ Shelley’s eagerness could compel. Indeed, Hervey did not imagine he had met a more compelling man. ’ That compelling way also took Hervey into the music room, where he saw that Elizabeth was very agreeably engaged and smiling. And, he told himself, if Elizabeth could be so diverted, then perhaps his previous withdrawal was needless as well as selfish. Next morning, Hervey left his lodgings in Via Babuino a little before a quarter to nine to walk by way of the Piazza di Spagna and Via Frattina to the Via del Corso.
You know it. ’ ‘I had not accounted it, Matthew. We are here on indefinite vacation, as you have said. ’ Hervey sat and contemplated his sister as she attended to her familial duties. Her defiant good spirits had been his support for so many years, unsung, unrecognized even, that he marvelled at her constancy. And not only that. Henrietta had been her companion long before she had been his. Elizabeth’s only companion. Her society since then had been the aged, the sick, the poor and the infirm. He, her brother, had shown scant regard for her bereavement.
Hervey saw a lofty analogy, yet was not dismayed, for Shelley’s was a wholly honest candour. ’ Shelley grasped his arm again. ’ Shelley’s warning, perhaps for its intensity, startled him. ‘Do you tell me the pain must endure, then? ’ ‘No,’ said Shelley, shaking his head decidedly. ‘Jupiter shall be dethroned and Prometheus unbound, though I own I am undecided yet by what means. But until that day, Prometheus shall defy the Furies, or else it can never come. ’ Shelley read him fragments, turning many pages at a time to find what he thought was most apt or diverting.
