ABSTRACT
The article presents short notes from the article "Noctes Neapolitanae: Sir William Hamilton and Emma, Lady Hamilton at the Court of Ferdinand IV," recently published in Illinois Classical Studies. The fluidity of the "Attitudes" is also beautifully described in the travel memoirs of John B.S. Morritt of Rokeby, a young British aristocrat who travelled to the East towards the end of the eighteenth century and found Emma's performances in Naples. A very similar impression is conveyed in the writings of Friedrich Johann Lorenz Meyer, who described several of Emma's "Attitudes" at length: "A slight turn of the body, a sudden change in the expression of facial features, one quickly modified throw of the garment depicts the most striking transformation of character."
