One has just been sent out as a biblical dove, has found nothing green, and slips back

E. M. Forster's "Least Known" Novel: "The Longest Journey"

Thought I'd give it a try, because I've read most of the others (long long ago). Supposedly his personal favorite too. Off to a slow start but I sort of liked this clip (I'm guessing "sombre room"?):

“Did it never strike you that phenomena may be of two kinds: ONE, those which have a real existence, such as the cow; TWO, those which are the subjective product of a diseased imagination, and which, to our destruction, we invest with the semblance of reality? If this never struck you, let it strike you now.” Rickie spoke again, but received no answer. He paced a little up and down the sombre roam. Then he sat on the edge of the table and watched his clever friend draw within the square a circle, and within the circle a square, and inside that another circle, and inside that another square. “Why will you do that?” No answer. “Are they real?” “The inside one is — the one in the middle of everything, that there’s never room enough to draw.”
