Evidence

Elizabeth Barrett to Mary Russell Mitford, 3 June 1841: "Yes [...] to [having read] Emerson"s letters [sic]. Or rather, yes, to the letters, & ""no"" to Carlyle"s preface -- because I read the American edition. Mr Kenyon lent the book to me, the book belonging to Mr Crabbe Robinson whose hair stood on end when he heard of its being lent to me! ""Why"" he said ""that book is too stiff even for myself -- and I am not very orthodox."" In fact the book [...] is very extravagant in some of its views. It sets about destroying [...] the personality of every person, & speaks of the Deity as of a great Background to which every created individual forms a little porch!!! For the rest, there are beautiful & noble thoughts in the book, beautifully & nobly said."
