Duke of Argyll : The Reign of Law

From Emily Tennyson's journal, 18 May 1867: 'He [Tennyson] read the new version of one of the "Window Songs," "Take my Love"; Heine's "Songs"; and some of the Reign of Law. The chapter on "Law in Politics" was especially interesting to us. The quotations from A. expressed some of the deepest truths [...] With the boys he was reading Flodden Field, the Prometheus of Aeschylus, and the 1st Georgic.'

Century: 1850-1899     Reader/Listener/Group: Alfred Tennyson      Print: Book
