PITHY QUOTE FROM Tennyson: Letters

Open quotes
Gladstone was at C. with me. I had met him before, but had never seen him so nearly. Very pleasant, and very interesting he was, even when he discoursed on Homer, where most people think him a little hobby-horsical: let him be. His hobby-horse is of the intellect and with a grace.

List of Contents

Tennyson, Alfred. The Letters of Alfred Lord Tennyson. Edited by Cecil Y. Lang and Edgar F. Shannon. 3 vols. Cambridge, Mass.: Harvard University Press; Oxford: Clarendon Press; and New York: Oxford University Press, 1981-1990.

The editors . . . have annotated the letters with marvellous fullness and precision and—what seems even more remarkable—with zest and wit. Through their exhaustive work we get, incidentally, a feeling for the texture of Victorian life.

This edition is a triumph of imaginative scholarship, worthy to stand beside the Pilgrim "Dickens" or Purdy and Millgate's "Hardy."
