Reading Experience:

Evidence:

John Gibson Lockhart to John Wilson Croker, 6 August 1846: 'The "Modern Timon" is not, I think, by a [italics]poet[end italics], but it is the work of a clever man, and who understands the construction of lines and the rhythm, and in short, all that people can learn without inspiration. I should suspect the Timon to be by Bulwer or Disraeli, or possibly Dicky Milnes'.
