I have never read a romantic essay before - it was a new experience, and a good one. It was a little like reading a short story, except that it didn't follow the normal rigid structure of a story. I liked the way it explored the nature of memory, and the idea of happiness in relation to poverty & age.

Charming, but also a useful illustration of the difference between 'niceties' and 'luxuries' and the changing cultural meaning of consumerism.
