Reading Experience:

Evidence:

??And which of the living poets fulfils your ideal standard of excellence?? ?Crabbe. He is all nature without pomp or parade and exhibits at times deep pathos and feelings. His characters are certainly homely and his scenes rather unpoethical; but then he invests his object with so much tenderness and sweetness that you care not who are the actors, or in what situations they are placed.??
