Reading Experience:

Evidence:

'January 4...I have read a good deal of "Cosmic Anatomy" and understood it far better. Yes, such a book does fascinate me. Why does J. [Middleton Murry] hate it so? To get a glimpse of the relation of things - to follow that relation and find it remains true through the ages enlarges my little mind as nothing else does. It's only a greater view of psychology....Read Shakespeare.'
