"I am anxious for the day when your English will be good enough for you to enjoy Meredith, Hardy, Locke and other great authors. The works of Meredith and Hardy are quite on another plane to what you have read so far. I shall never forget my first Meredith. It was ""Richard Feverel"". It was quite a revelation to me as to what a book might be. Every other Meredith I have supremely enjoyed. As far as I can remember I have read ""Evan Harrington"", ""Vittoria"", ""Rhoda Fleming"", ""Harry Richmans"",""The Egoist"", ""Diana of the Crossways"". I do not know which I like the best, I found every one absolutely finer that any other books. His style is exceedingly difficult, in fact it is bad because it is obscure, but do not doubt his greatness. He is great, very great, in spite of his style. He is not a novelist for the general public. You have to be a man of letters, even although only in embryo, to enjoy him. I think I have nearly all his works but I must some day get his biography of Professor Seccombe. I like Seccombe"s style so much. you will meet articles of his in the ""Bookman."""
