Evidence

‘Dear Mrs Cowley, ...I haven’t read anything very good for some time...Do you know Ruskin’s “Sesame and Lilies”. It seems absurd to ask but people sometimes miss books. I have missed scores. If you have never read it – it is entirely charming. I always keep it by me. The style is so perfect & it is all poetry though written in prose. Do you ever read Heine? I have some good translations of him. He is wonderful but very bitter. Yet I never read any irony like his. Lately I had a peak into Ossian the ancient Scotch poet born about 230 A.D. & son of Fingal. Some of it is very fine but I find it is better to dip into than read through. Here is a fine bit:- ...I must not inflict any more on you. Please write me a nice long letter & say what you think of the poem & with kind regards to Mr Cowley ...Geo Essex Evans’
