Abstract
A literary criticism of the book "Glenarvon," by Lady Caroline Lamb is presented. It presents the symbolic significance of the characters. It outlines the consequences of denying true love and the importance of aristocratic leadership and self-control. It examines the preface of the book in which the author states that the novel is not immoral even with the inclusion of crimes and she asks readers to recognize that her intention of writing the book is to describe human nature.
