Reading Experience:

Evidence:

??Moore, who is a poet of inspiration, could write in any circumstances. There is no man of the age labours harder than Moore. He is often a month working out the end of an epigram. Moore is a writer for whom I feel a strong affection, because he has done that which I would have done if I could; but after him it would be vain to try anything.??
