Sample text

Tennyson's interest in scientific discovery is evident in some of the sections of In Memoriam which he had already read to his friends, and in the request sent to Moxon in November 1844 for a copy of the anonymous Vestiges of Creation. Increasingly responding to social and economic injustices, his sympathies ran entirely, but perhaps too ideally, along lines of enlightened progress. In the early months of 1846 he studied Persian with FitzGerald's friend E. B. Cowell, A Tennyson Companion saw much of the Carlyles, and became friendly with Dickens, the young poet Coventry Patmore, and Robert Browning (who thought the way Moxon handled his hazy, naive, unconventionally mannered poet-protege the 'charmingest thing imaginable').

Edmund and Franklin Lushington were two of their earliest guests; FitzGerald, who acted as proxy godfather for Drummond Rawnsley at Lionel's christening, stayed two weeks, and delighted Alfred by playing Mozart and reading Persian with him. Other visitors included Spedding, Arthur Hugh Clough, Benjamin Jowett of Balliol, Patmore, and John Millais, one of the Pre-Raphaelite painters commissioned to illustrate the poet's works. Tennyson became friendly with shepherds, fishermen, and coastguards. Sometimes he rowed Emily and A TenTI)'son Companion Hallam as far as Alum Bay; he worked on the lawn, in the gardens, sometimes on the farm, and took great interest in wild flowers, birdlife, and geological evidences.

In the spring they took him to A Tennyson Companion Grayshott Farm, and by May he had sufficiently recovered to accompany his father and Lionel to Gilbert White's Selborne, where they climbed the steep Hanger. Remembering her home near Farnham, Emily was keen to live in the area, and it was while searching for a site on which to build a cottage that Tennyson was addressed by a man at Haslemere station. It was the architect] ames Knowles, who had dedicated a volume of Arthurian legends to him, visited Farringford in 1866, and been encouraged, because of the poet's short-sightedness, to greet him whenever they met.
