Four Books

Benjamin Jowett to Mrs. Moss, quoted in Geoffrey Madan's Notebooks: A Selection, edd. J.A. Gere and John Sparrow (1981; rpt. Oxford: Oxford University Press, 1985), p. 62:
Don't let that boy read too much. Let him read four books over and over again: Arabian Nights, Pilgrim's Progress, Plutarch's Lives, Robinson Crusoe.

Robert Collinson, Absorbed in Robinson Crusoe
