CHAPTER XIII
THE EARLY TWENTIETH CENTURY

AS the Victorian age drew to its close new influences were making themselves felt in English literature. Tennyson, who died in 1892, continued to produce fine poetry almost to the end of his long life, but he was actually the last of the great Victorians. Algernon Charles Swinburne startled and enchanted the poetryreading public with his Poems and Ballads (18 66) only two years after the Laureate had pleased sober and traditional taste with Aylrrzer's Field. He was the flaming herald of a revolt against convention, the forerunner of a rebellion which seems hardly to have reached its height even now.
In the nineties of the nineteenth century ideas were rapidly changing. On the one hand there was the rather affected, namby-pamby school represented by Oscar Wilde and his followers ; on the other there was the exotic, robust, and Imperialistic school, led by Rudyard Kipling. Realism, mild, but rather depressing, was represented by Thomas Hardy and those who accepted his view of life and art. In the world of drama George Bernard Shaw had begun to make people rub their eyes and shake their heads. H. G. Wells was attracting attention with his scientific romances. And George Moore had already, in several striking novels, put into practice his theory
