Even her portrait is indistinct. Bulwer Lytton Owen Meredith, the poetthe patient hostess of the old eccentric Walter Savage Landorand an attentive observer of the Tuscan society of her times. Exotic mysticism and romanticism are mixed in her writing, now all but forgotten, effaced like the inscription on her tombstone No.
Yet her personality remains that of a lively, strong, passionate woman faithful to the most precious gift, that of friendship. This woman seems to have been the friend of all, the common factor among the most diverse of them; she thus occupied an eccentric position, the networker. But today Isa Blagden, author of novels and poems and the central figure of the Anglo-American colony in Florence, is relegated to the margins, is almost forgotten in the history of English literature, as if she disappeared after a brief period of fame.

Novelist and poet, she is dropped after it is said she was a mediocre and scarcely original writer, because she wrote according to the Victorian canon. From her we can recover her personality, always drawn to attract around her the most important artists of the period, obscuring her work.
The most outstanding characteristic of Isabella Blagden is the lack of information that we have about her life, in particular for the period from her birth to her choice to settle in Italy.
The writer left neither autobiography nor diary, and in even the autobiographical works of her most intimate friends there is no information on the period before Besides, the greater part of the letters that she regularly wrote to her numerous friends have been lost.
Non sappiamo neppure con esattezza la data della sua nascita. Tuttavia le date sulla sua tomba sono — Though surrounded by a full crowd of friends, there is not a trace of any family relation.
We do not even know with any exactitude the date of her birth. Though the dates on her tomb are In What I Remember, Thomas Adolphus Trollope, born intells us that Blagden was much younger than he and this makes us think ofbut this, naturally, is only a supposition, so much are critics divided on the issue.
