Reading Experience:

Evidence:

'In a little book of poems by J S Squire called Twelve Poems there is one poem called March which I think quite beautiful. Do you know Mr Squire? ... He writes to me often and I to him but I have never seen him ... I have read Coriolanus and Timon of Athens by you know who. I think the author must have suffered in his life on account of the ingratitude of friends as nearly all of his plays are about ingratitude.'
