Evidence

"I have been reading a bunch of modern plays published by Benn. Some of them seem to me to be very good and to strike a very real and human note. What do you think of the ""Fanatics""? It took me by the throat as an expression of what, in general terms, I also think. I"m not sure that it is a play, in the sense that it would be good on the stage. I have sent for two new plays by O"Neill &mdash; if there"s anything else you think remarkable, you might tell me. One is apt to miss even outstanding things when one is guided only by reviews.<br/> I read when I come home after lunch. I"ve had 6 steady hours of work and I"m tired, and besides it"s too hot to do much. So I read myself to sleep, if I can, for an hour and then go on reading till it"s time to swim."
