Reading Experience:

Evidence:
Mary Berry, Journal, 9 March 1814: 'I dined with Madame de Stael; nobody but Campbell the poet, Rocca, and her own daughter [...] After dinner, Campbell read to us a discourse of his upon English poetry and upon some of the great poets. There are always signs of a poet critic and of genius in all he does, often encumbered by too ornate a style.'
