Excerpt from Tennyson

The following chapters have been written in accordance with a single purpose - to present as simply and directly as possible those poems of Tennyson in which he has given expression to the fundamental principles of his faith. In the interpretation of these poems I have availed myself of whatever comments the poet himself may from time to time have made upon them and of such parallel passages as serve to illuminate his meaning; and, whenever the knowledge would enable the reader the better to understand his philosophy and enter into its full significance, I have sought to relate the poems to the circumstances and conditions in contemporary thought, or in the life of the poet, that prompted their utterance and determined their content: but I have striven always, not to enforce a personal view, but to let the poet speak for himself directly through his lines and images to the consciousness of the reader.
