LORD TENNYSON IS DEAD
The Poet Laureate Sinks Into
His Sleep of Eternity.
HE WAS CONSCIOUS TILL THE LAST.
It Was Four Years Ago That the lllncsi
Which Terminated Fatally Dealty Com
menced—HI« Life Not Worth Living
Without His Pipe—The Poet's Career,
London, Oct. 6.—Lord Tennyson, tht
poet laureate of Euglund, died this morn
ing at twenty minutes to 3 o'clock.
Four years ago he had an attack of ill
ness from which he never fully recovered
It was so bad that he was induced to givt
up smoking, an abstention which did not
last long. He found that In such circum.
stances life was not worth living, and went
back to his long clay pipe.
The poet was conscious almost till tlit
last moment and knew that the end was
approaching. When his spirit fled he was
surrounded by the inmates of his house
hold.
Lord Tenny*on*« Career.
"There is a place called Somerby in Lin
colnshire, where an old white rectory stands
on the slope of a hill, and the winding

lanes are shtulowed by tall ash and elm
trees, and where two brooks meet at the
bottom of the gleite field. * * * The
wind that goes blowing where it listeth
once in the early beginning of this century
oarae sweeping through the gardeu of this
old Lincolnshire rectory, and us the wind
blew, a sturdy child of five years old, with
shining locks, stood opening his arms upoD
the blust and letting himself be blown
along, and us he traveled on he made hU
first line of poetry, and said, T hear a voice
that's speaking in the wiud,' and be tossed
his arms, and the gust whirled on, sweep
ing into the great abyss of winds."
In such poetic fashion does Anne T.
Ritchie, in an article written half a dozen
years ago In Harper's, refer to the child
hood of the poet laureate, Alfred Tennyson,
the germ of fancy Hashing from within
him at this tender age. It was at this
Somerby, where his father officiated as u
clergyman of the Church of England, that
Tennyson was born in 18UÜ. Here in the
quiet of a country place—and there was
then nothing but the lumbering English
couch to connect it with the outer world—
the child grew up.
His First Poem.
It was quite natural that the dainty hit«
of English scenery should have been in
delibly impressed upon Tennyson's mind,
and that throughout a long life devoted to
the poetic art he should have painted them
in so many charming word pictures.
Tennyson's first written poem was, it is
said, on tho flowers in the garden, and the
first money he ever received for a poem
was for an elegy on his grandmother. The
price for his pnsluctiou was ten shillings,
giveÿ him by his grandfather. Thomson
was then a favorite poet and the boy mod
eled his first verses upon "Tbe Seasons;"
but Byron was tho great rising iumiuury,
and the youngster, who had not yet gon«
so'far as to write in a style of his own, left
off copying Thomson and begun to copy
Byron. When Byron died Tennyson was
yet only fifteen years old, and it is not ap
parent that the younger bard ever ad
mired any otber poet so much as to imitate
him; besides he was growing into his own
individuality.
At twenty he gained a prize at Cambridge
fora poem called "Timbuctoo." With sofft«
trifling exceptions he published nothing
until ho came of age, iu 1830, when he got,
out a volume of "Poem», Chiefiy Lyrical."
They did not cause his countrymen to re
gard him as a great poet. Tennyson was
thirty three years old and had written con
siderable before ho came to be regarded a
poet of marked ability. In 1842 he pub
lished a volume of poems, many of which
had I teen published before, but several were
added, and among them tbe since famous
"Locksley Hall." This, taken with such
pieces as "Mort. d'Arthur," the "May
Queen" and "The Two Voices,'' stamped
Tennyson as a great poet, and from that
time forward his fame steadily increased.
A Working Poet.
Tennyson has been what might be called
a working poet. If there is one field In
which inspiration would sectn to be espe
cially requisite, it is poetry; but Teuuysuu
never relied upon "fits of frenzy." He wag
accustomed to go over aud over his verses -
changing, shuping, polishing—till he got
them as near perfection as work could

make them. It is said that he has gone
over some of his poems fifty times before
giving them to the world. One never finds
iu his productions the rough workmanship
of Byron, and seldom is there the evidence
of inspiration by which Byron or Shelley
threw off like a flash some of their marvel
ous passages. Tennyson has always de
clared that nothing is of value that is not
carefully done. But while he accomplished
much by taking pains, bis poems show
rather polished excellence than spontane
ous fervor.
During Tennyson's early days he pro
fessed to be a democrat. This tendency is
indicated especially in "Lady Clara Vere
and in "Locksley Hall." But
while the masses of 'the English people
were growing democratic Tennyson was
(lrittmg toward aristocratic views. Either
he was not sincere in the fini plr.co or he
was unable to withstand a nobleman^ cor

Lord Tatirrygon. livid during the dnys
when ho was doiug his best work in tilt
Isle of Wight, ut Furringford. There is a
beautiful country around Farringford, just
the country for the habitation of • poet,
ami it was there that he produced •'Maud."
Of Farringford the writer previously quot
ed says: "The house itself seemed like a
charmed palace, with green walls without
and speaking walls within. There hung
Dante with his solemn nose and wreath;
Italy gleamed over the doorways; friends'
faces lined the ways; books Oiled the
shelves and a glow of crimson was overy
where; the great oriel drawing room was
full of green and golden leaves, of the
sound of birds und the distant sea."
A dozen years ago Tennyson made his
home at Aldworth, not fur from London,
whero thenceforth he spent most of his
time with his wife, his childreu und his
grandchildren. He lived a comfortable,
happy life, passing gracefully into old age
—an old age mellowed by a bottle of port
each day for dinner und the uromu of to
bacco from his pipe, of both of which he
has been said to be especially fond.
Since 1870 Tennyson devoted himself
principally to dramatic works. They are
plays rather to be read than acted. "Queen
Mary" and "The Cup" were brought out
by Henry Irving, but did nut achieve any
distinctive success. Mncready fuiled to
make Browning's plays popular, and Ir
ving cannot be blamed for uiuking a simi
lar failure with TennyBon'g.
Tennyson has chiefly been known among
the mass of bis readers for his "Mhv
Q ueen," "Elaine," "I/ocksley Hall," "The
l'rincess" and several of his brief pieces.
Perhaps "Break. Break, Break," a poem
of only sixteen lines, is mure closely con- !
netted with the name of Tennyson and in
more minds than any of his poems.
