Reading Experience:

'The [underlined] whole [end underlining] trouble [in Bowen's relationships with her friends Phyllis and Clifford] is that Clifford doesn't admire your poetry!! so that somehow there is something lacking in their personal sympathy with me!!! And [underlined] I [end underlining] don't admire Clifford's, - tho' I try and dissemble a little - so you [underlined] see [end underlining]!! And this morning relations with P. were a trifle strained becaused she read me some poetry she'd written, for criticism, I said I thought there were always too many Stars & Pools & Buds in what she wrote, & she said I was so dreadfully sophisticated and affected!'
