Reading Experience:

Evidence:

Getting on with Iphigenia [in Aulide] I am very much interested in it ? particularly in the scene between Iphigenia & her father. How much simple affectionate nature there is in her character! The opposition between her?s, & Clytemnestra?s stately dignity, is skilfully conceived.
