"It was so charming of you to send me your anthology,..............It is particularly interesting to me, because, although your anthology and my second, and third(forthcoming) anthology cover the same period, we rarely cover the same ground. I am jealous, as well as happy, that you have included the four heavenly Keats Odes, and Shelley"s ""To Night"", one of the loveliest of all poems, and the beauties from ""Prometheus Unbound"". I am especially delighted, too, with your Tennyson, because with the exception of ""Tears, idle tears"" we touch different ground again, and that means that, when I am travelling, if I take your anthology and my anthologies, I shall be rich with nearly all the beauties I could need. We touch the same ground, again, in the inclusion of Rosetti"s ""The Woodspurge"", but our choice of Christina Rosetti is different, for I have gone completely mad, and have included the whole of ""Goblin Market"". Your anthology includes more poets than mine; your taste, I think, is more catholic. But under the influence of your anthology I am beginning to feel positively calm about Matthew Arnold - a state which I did not think would ever be mine, on that subject......"
