By Lady Mary Wortley Montagu,M. D'Amico

Alle spalle si lascia le sequen­ze di u­na parabola romanzesca: l. a. precoce vocazione let­teraria; l. a. fuga e il matrimonio contro los angeles volontà paterna; l'a­scesa nella società politico-in­­tel­lettuale inglese; il soggiorno, accanto al marito ambasciatore, a Costantinopoli, da dove impor­terà un metodo di immunizzazione dal vaiolo (la malattia che ha oltraggiato los angeles sua bellezza); l'e­pilogo deludente della relazione con il letterato Francesco Algarotti. Al­l'o­riz­zonte sembra dunque profilarsi una vecchiaia solitaria, «non dissimile da quella di Robinson Crusoe».
L'autunno della vita le riserverà invece l. a. grazia di un insperato equilibrio e di una saggezza dolorosa, rischiarata dalla luce dei luoghi dove in step with lo più risiede: quello «straordinario punto della Terra» tra il lago d'Iseo, le terme di Lovere e gli «invalicabili» monti circostanti. Ne sono testimonianza queste vibranti lettere a woman Bute, moglie del Primo ministro d'Inghilterra, diagramma di un rapporto tra madre e $glia di toccante intensità, nelle quali girl Montagu si dedica a un vero e proprio scavo della natura umana e nel contempo indica a girl Bute le vie di una pedagogia libertaria e antiretorica, e di un'emancipazione realistica ma inflessibile.
