      King Henry VIII originally courted Anne Boleyn’s sister Mary, butit was Anne who caught the English royal’s wandering eye —though she refused to be his mistress. She wanted to be Queen.Unfortunately for Anne, the temperamental King had anotherchange of heart and ordered her execution in 1536. Henry VIIIwrote Anne this letter in 1527:


      “I beg to know expressly your intention touching the love between us. Necessity compels me toobtain this answer, having been more than a year wounded by the dart of love, and not yet surewhether I shall fail or find a place in your affection.”



      Napoleon to His Wife Josephine


      The ruthless French leader had a sweet side for his wife Josephine. Although he divorced her whenshe could not have children, he continued to write to her. A few days after they were married,Napoleon left to command the French army near Italy. In the following months, he frequentlywrote, expressing how much he missed her. He wrote the following on July 17, 1796:

      拿破仑这位法国革命领袖残酷无情,然而对妻子约瑟芬却有柔情的一面。虽然因为约瑟芬无法怀孕而和她离婚,但他依旧保持着对她的通信。在他们婚后没几 天,拿破仑就离开家,前往离意大利不远处的前线指挥部队。在接下去的几个月中,他频繁地给妻子写信,表达相思之情。1796年7月17日,他在信中写道:

      “Since I left you, I have been constantly depressed. My happiness is to be near you. Incessantly Ilive over in my memory your caresses, your tears, your affectionate solicitude. The charms of theincomparable Josephine kindle continually a burning and a glowing flame in my heart. When, freefrom all solicitude, all harassing care, shall I be able to pass all my time with you, having only to loveyou, and to think only of the happiness of so saying, and of proving it to you?”

      “自从与你分别,我时常郁郁寡欢。我的幸福就是能与你相依。我不断在记忆里重温你的爱抚、你的泪水、你深情的挂念。世上没有人能同你相比,你的魅力总 会在我心中燃起熊熊烈火。我何时才能摆脱所有挂虑、所有恼人的担忧,和你共度生命中的每分每秒,向你证明,我只需要爱你,只需要想着向你诉说爱意时的幸福 之感。”


      Beethoven to His Immortal Beloved


      The identity of Ludwig van Beethoven’s “immortal beloved,” who received a plethora of lettersfrom the composer in 1812, is still a mystery, but historians believe it was Antonie Brentano, adiplomat’s daughter. Beethoven dedicated his Diabelli Variations Op. 120 to her, and in one of hisletters found after his death, he famously wrote:

      1812年,贝多芬“永远的爱人”收到了来自这位作曲家雪花般的来信,不过收信人的身份却依然无人知晓。不过,历史学家认为收信人是安东妮·布伦塔 诺。安东妮·布伦塔诺是一位外交家的女儿,贝多芬将他创作的《迪亚贝利变奏曲》献给了她。贝多芬去世后人们找到了他生前的书信,在其中有一句著名的话:

      “Though still in bed, my thoughts go out to you, my Immortal Beloved, Be calm–loveme–today–yesterday–what tearful longings for you–you–you–my life–my all–farewell. Ohcontinue to love me–never misjudge the most faithful heart of your beloved. Ever thine. Evermine. Ever ours.”

      “My darling Clemmie, in your letter from Madras you wrote some words very dear to me, abouthaving enriched your life. I cannot tell you what pleasure this gave me, because I always feel sooverwhelmingly in your debt, if there can be accounts in love…What it has been to me to live allthese years in your heart and companionship no phrases can convey.”

      “我亲爱的克莱米,你从马德拉斯寄来的信中写道让你的人生更为丰富,这些话对我来说太珍贵了。我无法表达出你给我带来了多少的快乐,因为我在想,如果 爱也能够计算,那么我欠你的实在太多……这些年来,你对我的爱始终没有停歇,陪伴在我身边,我实在难以用言语表达这些事对我的意义。”
