Reading Experience:

Byron to Elizabeth Pigot, 2 August 1807: 'I have now a Review before me entitled, "Literary Recreations" where my Bardship is applauded far beyond my Deserts ... [the] critique pleases me particularly because it is of great great length, and a proper quantum of censure is administered ... though I have written a paper ... which appears in the same work, I am ignorant of every other person concerned in it.'
