Evidence

Burney"s reading group reading two books - "the last voyage of Captain Cook and the letters of Madame de Sevigne. She makes little progress with Cook because of her fascination with Sevigne, a "siren" who "seduces me from all other reading"; she feels such an intense response to the letters that it is as if Sevigne "were alive and even now in my room and permitting me to run into her arms."
