Reading Experience:

Evidence:
E. M. Forster to Edward Joseph Dent, 3 Ocotber 1906: 'You would hardly know me, so violently has Chartres gothicised me [...] In or outside Chartres you can find every human passion. Huysman[s], amid much nonsense, does make this point -- that the middle ages did not shirk things [...] His is an interesting book -- I forget if you set me onto it: at all events you first told me his name.'
