Reading Experience:

Elizabeth Barrett to Lady Margaret Cocks, 9 December 1835: 'Have you seen Serjeant Talfourd's new tragedy, the Ion [...] He has been kind & flattering enough to send it to my publisher for me; & I read it thro' yesterday with much pleasure & admration. The tone of sentiment throughout it, is high & noble -- & the impression of the whole, like the sight of a hero. My fault finding is confined to a want of concentration, which I either perceive or fancy.'
