CHAPTER XII
THE VICTORIAN ERA

Love took up the glass of Time, and turn'd it in his glowing hands;
Every moment, lightly shaken, ran itself in golden sands.
Love took up the harp of Life, and smote on all the chords with
might;
Smote the chord of Self, that, trembling, pass'd in music cut of
sight.

In these volumes, too, were Moyte d'Arthur and snatches of poems on Galahad and Launcelot,enough to show that Tennyson had found old 1Vlalory, and that the stories of King Arthur and the Round Table were haunting his mind. When The Princess came out, there was some criticism of the impossible
story in a probable setting, of the mingling of the earn--st and the burlesque, which the poet had not entirely forestalled by calling the poem A Medley. It is a very beautiful medley, however, and the songs which were interspersed in the later edition are most exquisite. Here are " Sweet and Low," " The splendour falls on castle walls," and others.
The year 1850 was a marked season for Tennyson. It was the year of his marriage to the lady from whom financial reasons had separated him for twelve years; it was the year of publication of In Mernos-ian2 and of his appointment as Laureate. In Memoriam was called forth by the death of Arthur Henry Hallam, Tennyson's best-loved college friend, which took place seventeen years earlier. It is a collection of short poems, gleams of his thoughts of is friend, changing as time passed from " large grief," f om questioning, " How fares it with the happy dead ?" from tender memories of Hallam's words and waysfrom all these to the hour when he who grieved could rest
