With the publication of his Lettres intimes, people have begun to talk once again of Berlioz's venomous nature and bad character. This chapter holds, however that Berlioz was not a cunning person: he was sincere, and said what was in his heart and his head without thinking about the consequences. It suggests that Berlioz was too fond of Shakespeare, Byron and Goethe, and he unwittingly admitted the fact. It was Lélio that gave Camille Saint–Saëns the opportunity to meet the great man and to win his valuable friendship.

Keywords:   Lettres intimes, Berlioz, Shakespeare, Byron, Goethe, Lélio, Camille Saint–Saëns
