Reading Experience:

Evidence:
From Frederick Locker-Lampson's recollections of Tennyson: 'Tennyson was greatly impressed by the deadly-earnest and savagery, and let me say [italics]sadness[end italics], of Swift's Legion Club. He has more than once read it to me: on the last occasion, Houghton and George Venables, two great friends [...] were present, and they were also impressed by it.'
