"Father saw me off at Naples — I felt most dreadfully sad at saying goodbye to my dear family, but I consoled myself by reading ""Ulysses"" which is a most beautiful poem and I don"t care what the Strongs say! Don"t you think it"s very good? I"m almost afraid I may be too much carried away by it, but certainly as English verse it seems to me to touch the highest levels."
