Reading Experience:

Evidence:
Elizabeth Barrett to Thomas Westwood, 26 December 1843: 'Although I have read rather widely the divinity of the Greek Fathers [...] & have of course informed myself in the works generally of our old English divines, Hooker's, Jeremy Taylor's & so forth, I am not by any means a frequent reader of books of theology as such [...] I read the Scriptures every day & in as simple a spirit as I can; thinking as little as possible of the controversies engendered in that great sunshine, & as much as possible of the heat & glory belonging to it.'
