Evidence:
Thomas Carlyle to Robert Browning, 21 June 1841: 'Many months ago you were kind enough to send me your Sordello; and now this day I have been looking into your Pippa passes, for which also I am your debtor [...] both Pieces have given rise to many reflections in me [...] you seem to possess a rare spiritual gift, poetical, pictorial, intellectual [...] to unfold which into articulate clearness is naturally the problem of all problems for you.'
