Lord Boothby talking about Michael's literary influences. Was he a romantic? The effect that Michael's death had on just about everyone, particularly Roger Senhouse.
He was a great reader. He read through a lot. He was fond of Stevenson, I know. But whether there was any single person that exercised a great influence over him, I don't know.<br />
Was he what you would call, a romantic?<br />
Yes. He was lovely. But I think he was very emotional. And he concealed his emotions to a large extent. And he had emotional relationships. With women and men. Without much more. Certainly when he died, I had more desperate letters. I can see Roger Senhouse being led up the high kings (?), sobbing. And he had a tremendous effect. And I had a lot of his letters since I know a lot of people in those days. And the most was Reverend Marchbanks. He carried a profound effect from that day.
