This chapter attempts to shed some light on a largely overlooked thematic concern of Marino Faliero and suggests that it is a central issue at stake in the play. It demonstrates that this issue is one that bubbles under the surface and informs the progress of a host of Byron's poems ranging from Childe Harold I and II right through to The Island and Don Juan. It argues that Marino Faliero throws into sharp relief something that interested Byron throughout his adult life. The analysis of Marino Faliero focuses on its interest in the powerful influence of aristocratic modes of thinking and being.
