Excerpt from Studies in TennysonThis volume is intended to be a companion to my Select Poems of Tennyson. I have put it second in the pair because that is its right place. Criticisms, comments, interpretations, are of comparatively little use until you have read the poetry of which they treat. Like photographs of places that one has not seen, they lack the reviving, realizing touch of remembrance.The book contains a series of essays, written at different times, printed separately in different places, and collected, substantially, in a book called The Poetry of Tennyson, which was fortunate enough to find many friends, and has now, I believe, gone out of print. This is a revision of it, with such corrections, additions, and omissions as will, perhaps, serve to make it a little better.It may be permissible, in this connection, to tell of the way in which these chapters came to be written. It is a personal story, but it has a certain bearing on the general subject of the love of poetry, - the seed of which is more common than most people suppose, but which often needs help to grow.It all began with a birthday gift of a dollar which a boy received on his fourteenth birthday, from a very pleasant old lady. His whim led him into a bookshop to spend this money, which burned in his pocket; and his guardian angel, or possibly some prophetic instinct in the lame little bookseller, directed his unconscious choice to a book called Enoch Arden.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
