Beethoven's love letters, which feature in the film, were addressed to a nameless "immortal beloved", and were never sent. In the Macmillan collection, the intensity of the letters is usually caused by the impossibility of the passion they describe: Robert Browning courting Elizabeth Barrett, imprisoned in her father's house; Keats sighing over his neighbour Fanny Brawne, so near yet so far.
