Excerpt

This study begins with the publication of Poems by Two Brothers, Tennyson's earliest work, in 1827, and closes with the publication of the first of the Idylls of the King in 1859. It traces Tennyson's rise to fame. From 1859 till the coming of the reaction against him soon after his death, Tennyson was firmly ensconced as the chief Victorian poet.

The largest part of my work has been done in four places: the Library of Congress, the New York Public Library, the Harvard College Library, and the Boston Public Library. To all departments of these libraries I am greatly indebted for the use of their facilities. Also, the libraries of Duke University, the University of North Carolina, and the University of Georgia have rendered much assistance. Two libraries in which I have spent less time but in which I found several of the most significant items contained in this work are the Pierpont Morgan Library of New York City and the Boston Athenaeum.

The Union Catalogue of the Library of Congress, the Union Library Catalogue of the Philadelphia Metropolitan Area, the Cleveland Regional Union Catalog, and the Bibliographical Center for Research (Denver, Colorado) have helped me ably in my search for American editions and impressions of Tennyson. And I am grateful to the Houghton Mifflin Company, successors to Ticknor and Fields, Tennyson's authorized American publishers, for furnishing me with detailed records of Ticknor and Fields's editions.
