"I have been reading Marlow, and I was so much more impressed by him than I thought I should be, that I read Cymbeline just to see if there mightn"t be more in the great William than I supposed. And I was quite upset! Really and truly I am now let in to [the] company of worshippers-though I still feel a little oppressed by his-greatness I suppose. I shall want a lecture when I see you; to clear up some points about the Plays. I mean about the characters. Why aren"t they more human?
