Reading Experience:

E. M. Forster to Malcolm Darling, 12 August 1910: 'Do you get any time for reading? I am taking huge chunks of Mat Arnold. he's not as good as he thinks, but better than I thought. His central fault is prudishness -- I don't use the word in its narrow sense, but as implying a general dislike to all warmth. He thinks warmth either vulgar or hysterical.'
