Reading Experience:

Evidence:
Edward Fitzgerald to Alfred Tennyson (1873): 'I have a word to say about "Gareth" which your publisher sent me as "from the author." I don't think it is mere perversity that makes me like it better than all its predecessors, save and except (of course) the old "Morte." The subject, the young knight who can endure and conquer, interests me more than all the heroines of the 1st volume.'
