Tennyson as a Thinker

Tennyson as a Thinker

TENNYSON AS A THINKER. By Henry S. Salt. (Fifield.) 6d. net.

Reprint of an essay which aroused some criticism twenty years ago. Mr. Salt, while admiring Tennyson’s lyrical style and his command of poetic technique, submits that his philosophy is “that of a man who, by the conditions of his birth, temperament, and general surroundings, was to a large extent incapacitated for recognising the true tendencies of the times in which he lived.”

The Observer, June 27, 1909, p. 5
