Reading Experience:

Joseph Arnould to Alfred Domett, c.8 November 1843: 'What a pity [Tennyson] has not the intense vigour of Robert Browning -- I still believe as devoutly as ever in Paracelsus & find more wealth of thought & poetry in it than [in] any book except Shakespeare. The more one reads the more miraculous does that book seem as the work of a man of five and twenty'.
