Tennyson : Notebook 'XXX'

Tennyson, Alfred Tennyson, Baron, 1809-1892


<p style='text-align: justify;'>This is a small octavo brown-sheep notebook of the type used by Tennyson from 1823-1833. Originally containing 80 leaves, Tennyson has cut and ripped away all but 14. The drafts left in the notebook represent late stages of composition; they are continuous and relatively free of corrections, suggesting that Tennyson may have transcribed corrected earlier drafts of these poems into this notebook during the first half of 1833. Tennyson dated the inside top cover, 25 June 1833. Ricks, dates ‘The Two Voices’ to June 1833, and—though he does not mention the 'Two Voices' draft contained in this notebook—it is probable that all of the drafts contained here were in place by the end of that month.</p>
