    What does "of" mean in this sentence:

    "What do I want of variety in the short time I have to spend here?"

    The sentence seems to mean:
    "What is the use of variety for me ... ?" (Rethorical question: I have no use for variety...) or something of the sort, but I don't undestand the meanig of "of" here.

    That's what it means to me- 'What use is variety...'
