Reading Experience:

Evidence:
'The "Lakers," as Byron called them, were making themselves strongly felt [in 1812], and (at this moment) Southey most strongly of all. So Annabella waded through Madoc. She found some passages wearisome, but was convinced that Southey would one day be ranked high "among the ancient poets." Her prophecy may have come true, for it is impossible to tell what she meant by it. She was often guilty of this woolly kind of writing.'
