Tennyson at Twickenham (1851–3)

  • William Allingham
Part of the Interviews & recollections book series (IR)


I ventured to send my first volume of verse (1850) to Tennyson from Ballyshannon. I don’t think he wrote to me, but I heard indirectly that he thought well of it; and during a visit to London in the summer of 1851 Coventry Patmore,1 to my boundless joy, let me know that I might call on the great poet, then not long married,2 and living at Twickenham.
