Notes

1) T.p. epigraph (1): [“Malheur au bon esprit dont la pensée altière / D’un cœur indépendant s’élance toute entière, / Qui respire un air libre; et jamais n’applaudit / Au despotisme en vogue, à l’erreur eu crédit. / ... / Mais ferme dans ma route, et vrai dans mes discours, / Tel je fus, tel je suis, tel je serai toujours.” ]; from Marie-Joseph Chénier, 'Essai sur la satire' (1818), ll. 370-73, 396-97.

2) T.p. epigraph (2): [“We Travellers are in very hard circumstances. If we say nothing but what has been said before us, we are dull and we have observed nothing. If we tell any thing new, we are laughed at as fabulous and romantic; not allowing either for the difference of ranks (which affords difference of company), or more curiosity, or change of customs that happens every twenty years in every country.” Lady M. W. Montague.]; from Lady Mary Wortley Montagu, Turkish Embassy Letters (1718).
