In Stanza VIII of “The Prisoner of Chillon,” the prisoner Bonnivard describes his youngest brother’s despair and death. He describes his brother again in natural terms as a “flower” (line 1) and as connected to his mother (bearing “his mother’s image in fair face,” line 3), and it is this brother’s welfare which gives the prisoner the strength to hold onto life at this time.
