Alfred Tennyson : Harold

A. P. Stanley to Alfred Tennyson, 25 December 1876: 'I will gladly contrive if you wish to transmit your poem [Harold] to the Queen. I know that Her Majesty is expecting it. 'I ought ere this to have thanked you for my own copy. It cheered some mournful winter evenings for me, and it will, I trust, for the country at large, revive or rekindle the dying touch of Truth and the belief that there is something greater and nobler than the capricious Norman Saints.'

Century: 1850-1899     Reader/Listener/Group: A. P. Stanley      Print: Book
