Excerpt

This essay has been written in several places, during several years. I wish to acknowledge the courteous aid I have received in the libraries of Yale, of Harvard, and of the University of Kansas. I have obtained books through inter-library loan from the Universities of Chicago, Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, and Virginia; from the Boston Athenaeum and the Mercantile Library of Philadelphia; and from the Library of Congress.

I wish to thank The Macmillan Company for permission to quote from the Works ofTennyson, from Poems by Two Brothers, and from Unpublished Early Poems by Alfred Tennyson; from the Memoir ofTennyson written by his son, and from Tennyson and his Friends.

I have received help and advice from many of my colleagues at the University of Kansas. Professor C. K. Hyder has read and commented on the later drafts of each chapter. My final manuscript has been read by Professors J. W. Ashton, J. E. Hankins, L. R. Lind, and W. S. Johnson. My debts to Professors Mary Grant and A. T. Walker I have acknowledged in the appendix.

I am heavily indebted to Professor Fletcher McCord for advice upon the psychological aspects of my subject. For the opinions and interpretations that I advance, however, I am alone responsible.

W.D.P.
