really liked it
bookshelves: classics, brilliant

It is hard to write so deeply about emotions and make them understood universally. A difficult read but well worth it.

To be able to write so deeply of something as personal as feelings, to have these writings understood universally and accepted to be true, this is truly a mark of genius. Genuine pleasure from reading this book.
