Reading Experience:

'... therefore was my satisfaction great to receive (as I did this morning) a copy of your works with your own friendly autograph. I need not say how much I feel the honour you have done me in translating some of my poems... I have not yet had time and leisure sifficient to read your translations from myself carefully; but from what I have seen, ... they are not dry bones, but seem full of a living warmth in fact a Poet's [underlined] translation of poetry.'
