Paris. Ladvocat Librarire. 1829. pp. 188. 8vo. Half calf, marbled boards. 8vo. Some slight foxing. In the introduction Delavigne denies that he has copied Byron's tragedy. 'On a dit que mon ouvrage etait une traduction de la tragedie de Lord Byron. Ce reproche est injuste. J'ai du me rencontrer avec lui dans quelques scenes donnees par l'histoire; mais la marche de l'action, les ressorts qui la conduisent et la soutiennent, le developpement des caracteres et des passions qui la modifient et l'animent, tout est different.' In Stendhals Scarlet & Black, the hero, Julien Sorel compares the nobles of France that he meets at a ball to the nobles of Venice he has seen portrayed in Delavigne's Marino Faliero.
