Evidence

Tuesday 19 January 1915: "I"m reading The Idiot. I cant bear the style of it very often; at the same time, he seems to me to have the kind of vitality in him that Scott had; only Scott merely made superb ordinary people, & D. creates wonders, with very subtle brains, & fearful sufferings. Perhaps the likeness to Scott partly consists in the loose, free & easy, style of the translation. I am also reading Michelet, plodding through the dreary middle ages; & Fanny Kemble"s Life. Yesterday in the train I read The Rape of the Lock, which seems to me ""supreme"" -- almost superhuman in its beauty & brilliancy -- you really can"t believe such things are written down."
