William Ware : Zenobia: or, The Fall of Palmyra

Elizabeth Barrett to Mary Russell Mitford, 14 January 1843: 'I have read the Letters from Palmyra. They are [...] powerfully written, in an elevated style which rises, not unfrequently, into eloquence! Still there does appear to me a coldness -- oh I may be very wrong -- but I read the book some time since, it struck me so.'

Century: 1800-1849     Reader/Listener/Group: Elizabeth Barrett      Print: Book
