I love the story, and especially the Merchant-Ivory film, for the romance, growth of the repressed character, the well-drawn support characters, and the locations in Florence and rural England. Learn more about this classic story here.

    For Lucy in Fiesole !

    For want of strength I cannot face that lady’s light,
    nor shelter in dark places, or the hours of night.
    Fate forces me to gaze on her as she appears,
    through eyes already injured, half-blind with tears,
    knowing too well my true desire, my shame:
    to go beyond her light, into her flame.
