Alfred Tennyson : Idylls of the King

H. R. H. Prince Albert to Alfred Tennyson, 17 May 1860: 'Will you forgive me if I intrude upon your leisure with a request which I have thought some little time of making, viz. that you would be good enough to write your name in the accompanying volume of your "Idylls of the King"? You would thus add a peculiar interest to the book, containing those beautiful songs, from the perusal of which I derived the greatest enjoyment.'

Alfred Tennyson : Guinevere

The Crown Princess of Prussia to Alfred Tennyson, 23 February 1862: 'The first time I ever heard the "Idylls of the King" was last year, when I found both the Queen and Prince quite in raptures about them. The first bit I ever heard was the end of "Guinevere," the last two or three pages: the Prince read them to me, and I shall never forget the impression it made upon me hearing those grand and simple words in his voice!'
