Tennyson, Alfred, D.C.L., the greatest of living poets. (1870,) was b. 1810, at Somersby, Lincolnshire, of which parish the Rev. Dr. George Clayton Tennyson (a descendant of the ancient and noble family of D'Eyencourt, now represented by the poet's uncle, the Rt. Hon. Charles Tennyson D'Eyencourt, M.P.) wa» Rector. Dr. Tennyson's three eldest sons, Frederick, Charles, and Alfred, were all educated at Trinity College, Cambridge, and pupils of the Rev. Dr. Whewell, afterwards Master, then one of the tutors, of that famous seat of learning, which hue fitted so many disciples for eminence in scientific lore and literary research. In 1828 Frederiok Tennyson took the medal for a Greek poem recited at the commencement of that year; in 1829 Alfred gained the Chancellor's medal for his English prize poem (consisting of about 250 lines) of Timbuctoo; ulso published in 1829; in 1827 Alfred and Charles had published, without their names, a small volume, entitled Poems by Two Brothers, (Simpkin, 12mo, 5«.; cr. Svo, 7».;) long /t'6er rariartwitts. Charles's portion of this collection was preferred by Coleridge to that of Alfred; and in his account of his second visit (in 1848) to Wordsworth, Mr. R. W. Emerson tells us,

"Tennyson he [Wordsworth] thinks a right poetic genius, though with somo affectation. He had thought an elder brother of Tennyson at first the better poet, but must now reckon Alfred the true one."— tjtijlith Traill, Lou., 1867, 166. See Tikntsou, Charles.

"I saw Tennyson in London several times. He is decidedly the first of our living poets, and I hope will give the world still batter things. Yon will be pleaded to hear that he expressed, In the strongest ternu), his gratitude to my writings."—Wordsworth to Pro/, Henry Herd, 1845.

Since this joint venture, Alfred (who succeeded Wordsworth as Poet-Laurate, Nov. 21, 1850, and received the degree of D.C.L. from Oxford in 1855) has given to the world the following volumes.

1. Poems, chiefly Lyrical, Lon., 1830, fp. 8vo.

"Mr. Tennyson has made some very touching and some very animating melodies; in' is master of musical combination!; his Bongs set themselves, and generate their own tune*, as all songs, do which are good for any thing."—YVesrm. Iter., xiv. 210.

'•We are extremely pleased with Mr. Tennyson. . . . Some of his scattered thoughts are eminent) v beautiful."—Lon. Atlas, Juno 27,1830.

The volume was commented on by Professor Wilson in Blackwood's Magazine, May, 1832, (xxxi.) 720-741, (rcpub. in Wilson's Works, vi. 109-152, 1850.) with both praise and censure. In the Noctea Anibrosiause for the preceding February, Wilson remarks,

"He has a fine ear for melody, and harmony too—and rare and rich glimpse* of imagination. He haa genius. . . . I admire Alfred, and hope—nny, trust—that one day he will prove himself a poet. If he do not—then am I no prophet."—xxxi. 277. See, also, Feb. 1836, (xxxix.) 265.

2. Poems, 1832, (some 1833,) fp. 8vo, pp. 163. Consisting partly of reprints with alterations, partly of new pieces.

"Lately I have been reading some of Alfred Tennyson's second volume, and with profound admiration of his truly lyric and Idyllic genius. There seems to me to have been more epic power In Keats, that fiery, beautiful meteor; but they are two most true and great poets."—.john Sturlixo: Letters.

*' He has lyrical ease and vigour, and is looked upon by sundry critics Sb the chief living hope of the Muse."—Allan CunHingbam: Bioff. and Crit. Hist., 1833.

*' The first of these two volumes consists of republished poems, and may be regarded, we presume, as all that Mr. Tennyson wished to preserve of his former editions. He has silted in moat cases his earlier harvests, and kept the better grain. There are some additions of verses and stanxns here and there, many minute changes, and alio beneficial shortenings and condensations. The second volume, however, is on the whole far advanced in merit beyond tbe first. There is more clearness, ■olidity, nnd certainty of mind visible in it throughout; especially some of the blank-verse ]*>emtt—a style almost unatlempted in tbe earlier series—have a quiet completeness and depth, a sweetness arising from the happy balance of thought, feeling, and expression, that ranks them among the riches of our recent literature."— Lon. Quar. Iter., Sept. 1842, (lxx.)39o.

"Powers are displayed in these volumes, adequate, if we do not deceive ourselves, to the production of a great work; at least, we hhould find it difficult to say which of the requisite powers in wanting. But they are displayed in fragments and hn.iii he*, having no couneetion, and therefore deriving no light or fresh interest the one from tbe other. By this their effective viilne in incalculably diminished."—Edin. iter., April, 1843, (Ixxvii.) 390,

4. The Princess: a Medlev, Lon., 1847, fp. Svo: Bost., 1848, 16mo; 13th ed., Lon..'l865, fp. Svo.

"This piece, though full of meanings of abiding value, is ostensibly a brilliant serio-comic j'U uV esprit upon the noise about 'woman's rights,' which even now censes to make itself heard anywhere but in the refuge of exploded European absurdities beyond the Atlantic. . . . Mr. Tennyson has proved himself to be possessed of artistic faculties which put it out of the question that he should himself be thoroughly satisfied with this performance."—Edin. Her., Oct. 18;5. (cii.) art. viii.

"The abundant grace and descriptive beauty which meet the superficial eye constitute but its external charm. Studying bis work with that attention which tbe labours of a true intet should always command, we soon discover that, while fantastic In its subject, it is eminently human iu seutimeut, aud that the

human gradually rises higher and higher into the moral.**— Edin. Iter., Oct. 1849, (xc.) 398, (same in Eclec. Mag., xix. 66.)

"The Princess is not a drama, uor is it a fairy-tale in verse, hut a fantastic metrical romance. . . . The second title of this lively performance point* out its principal object: it is n medley, and, we must think, a somewhat incongruous one. The fearless intermixture of the mode* nnd phrases of all ages, past and present, is a resource better fitted for a brief jeu tTesprit than for a work of this compass; but that is not the worst. The main web of the tale is a gossamer fabric, and can ill sustain the heavy embroidery raised upon it : the low key at which it is pitched indisposes the mind lor the higher strains to which the piece changes. . . . Tbe faults of the poem are soon nuinU'itd aud ticketed: it is more difficult to do justice to its beauties." —Lon. Quar. Her., Dec. 1847, (lxxxii.) 430, 44ft, 461.

"However it grew, it is a charming melody; and that purposed anachronism which runs throughout, blending new and old, new theory and old romance, lends to it a perpetual piquancy."— Blackw. Mag., April, 1819, (Ixv.) 4611.

"Taken as a whole, we nm-t pronounce it a beautiful poem, the production of a truly poetical mind, and show ing the most indisputable marks of a high artistical power superintending the creation and arrangement and classification of the whole."— Lon. Gent. Mag., 1848, i. 1311

"Regarding 'The Princess,' it is no marvel that such a contrariety of opinion has l«*en expressed by seemingly competent judges. Its beanties and faults are so inextricably interwoven, and the latter are so glaring and many.—nay, often apparently so wilful,—that, as a sincere admirer of the genins of Tennyson, 1 could almost wish the poem had remained unwritten. 1 admit the excellence of particular jutssage*; but it has neither general harmony of design nor sustained merit of execution."— D.

In Memoriam appeared without a name, (see Lon. Gent. Mag., 1850, ii. 59, Lon. Athen., l^aO, 629 ;) nor was a name needed.

"Although in some few places this work wants that perfect polish which distinguishes the author's lesser poems, upon the whole it is not only the best specimen of poetical sk 11 which Mr. Tennyson has produced, but it surpasses, in this resjiect, all poems of equal magnitude written during the |Ht*t century."— Edin. Iter.. Oct. 1*55. (H12,) art. viii.

The same periodical also asserts, in another place, that

11 In Memoriam Jr the most exquisite creation by any man of genius during the Inst forty years."

"'In Memoriani' comes more intimately home to English sympathies than 'Lyridns1 or ' Adonais,' and may he pointed to, perhaps, as the one special monody lo which beauty of tot ni and feeling have given an universal currency."—/.cm, Athm., 1803, i. 85.

*' We have in ' Maud' scarcely more than a residuum of Alfred Tennyson ; the wide sweeping intellect, the mild philosophy, the healthy pathos, the wondrous melody, have almost all vanished, and left little more than a narrow scorn which piques itself on its scorn of narrowness, and a passion which clothes itself in exaggerated conceits."—Wutnx.

** Even in the wildcat rhapsodies of 'The Princess' Mr. Tennyson has never Ijeeti so careless, visionary, and unreal as in this poetical treatment of aplain. popular, and literal theme.

Critic, 1857) was purchased by the Fellows of Trinity College, Cambridge, and stands in the vestibule of their library. A portrait of Tennyson, from life, was issued separately in Lon., Nov. 1861.

We bad designed to close this article with an array of critical opinions on Tennyson's characteristics ns a poet from eminent authorities on both sides of the water, but we have already occupied as much space as we can well afford. A few lines, however, must find a place.

Two prominent American critics, both of whom recorded their verdicts (the first in 1844, and the last before 1849) prior to the appearance of In Memoriam, differed very greatly in their estimate of Tennyson's poetical genius:

"I am not sure that Tennyson Is not the greatest of poets. The uncertainty attending the public conception of the term 'poet' alone prevents me from demonstrating that he w. Other bards produce effects which are, now and then, otherwise produced than by what wo call poems; hut Tennyson an effect which only a poem does. His alone are idiosyncratic poems."— Kiwi.\a A. Poe: Literati; Marginalia, ccxiv.

"The peculiarities of Ins stylo have attracted attention, and his writings have enough intrinsic merit, probably, to secure him a permanent place in the third or fourth rank of English contemporary poets."—Dr. It. W. Gbjswold: l\>el» and 1'w.ivy of England.

But Dr. Griswold lived long enough to write,

"Of the living poets of England, Tennyson at this time occupies the highest rank; and he is destined to a wide and high regard."

"He has opened a new vein in English poetry, and shown that rent genius, even in the most advanced stages of society, can strike a fresh chord, and, departing from the hackneyed ways of imitation, charm the world by the conceptions of original thought. His imagination, wide and discursive as the dreams of fancy, wanders at will, not over the real so much as the ideal world. The grottoes of the sea, the caves of the mermaid, the realms of heaven, are alternately the scenes of his song. His versification, wild as the song of the elfin king, is broken and irregnlar, but often inexpressibly charming. Sometimes, however, this tendency leads him Into conceit: in the endeavour to be original, he becomes fantastic.
