Reading Experience:

Evidence:
'In 1885 he [Tennyson] came across Amiel's Journal Intime, and thought his criticisms on Hugo and literature in general good; but that the Journal throughout was too morbid for anything. 'The modern French poets were read by him with great interest. The last French poems he read were by Coppee, and by Jean Aicard.'
