T. E. Lawrence to Edward Garnett


[9 lines omitted] Opinions are not worth much: they are too subjective. There is no absolute, and therefore no criticism. As you say, I tend to go Tolstoyan with years: I now like H.G. Wells better than Norman Douglas: and call Kipling better than Crackanthorpe: just because their carelessness give me a sense of power. They feel they have gold to throw away. The stylists are too miserly. Agreed I am a bad example of the too-careful type. [32 lines omitted]
