Reading Experience:

'Am reading Meredith's Egoist. C. [David Lloyd George] said he was afraid it would lessen my love for him, as he throws such a clear light on the male character. C. says that Meredith has just such an insight on character as the physician has on your body when he puts the electric light arrangement on his forehead. C says too that Meredith was the first to conceive the revolt of woman — the revolt against the accepted relations of husband and wife, that is to say.'
