When

“I think that one’s liking for a book depends in large measure upon the time when one reads it; it must form a link with something that has gone before, answer some unanswered thoughts, open some closed door before which one has been helplessly standing.”

— May 23, 1900, Anne Douglas Sedgwick in a letter to Mrs. James Pitman
