Reading Experience:

From Frederick Locker-Lampson's recollections of Tennyson: 'Rogers used often to read to him passages of his writings, and to consult him about the notes to his Italy. "He liked me," Tennyson said, "and thought that perhaps I might be the coming poet, and might help to hand his name down to future ages."'
