Reading Experience:

Evidence:
Leonard Woolf to Lytton Strachey, 8 April 1902: 'I was glad to hear you had really read it [Le Pere Goriot] & I agree with you -- in the main -- about it. Of course personally I never or try never to compare it with Lear because though it challenges comparison all through on the face of it, I don't really think it is fair to do so.'
