Sheridan, Richard Brinsley: Had I a heart for falsehood framed, in: Duenna, or The Double Elopement.

Dublin Core


Lied, englische Literatur


"Public Amusement [/ Temptation] / "Had I a heart for falshood fram'd, / I ne'er could injure you: /  For tho' your Tongue no promise claim'ed, / Your charms would make me true." 
Sign. "H. Ramberg invt. delt.   W. Ward sculpsit"
British Museum Beschr. "A young woman in a theatre box, leaning on the side holding a fan half-open in right hand below left cheek, smiling down over it, wearing a large frilled hat with a bow, fichu and dark shawl, hair in curls over her shoulders, a dog beside her, curtain to right and pillar to left".

"Private Amusement; Reflection / Vows of Love should ever bind / Men who are to honour true, / They must have a Savage mind, / Who refuse the Fair their due." [title changed in second state]
"H. Ramberg delt.   W. Ward sculpsit"
Ohne Verse auch British Museum;
Beschr. "A young woman sitting back in her chair, pausing for thought as she writes a reply to a letter, leaning her head on her left hand, the elbow on a round table beside her, quill in right hand, drooping at her side, wearing a large hat, light dress with an open collar, sash and a dark shawl".
