The Abominable: ‘Œnone’

  • Aidan Day

Abstract

Critical interest in ‘Œnone’ has proven less intense than Tennyson’s own preoccupation with the poem. He worked and reworked ‘Œnone’ with an almost obsessive, certainly an extremely intricate, attention to detail. The manuscript variants of the work are legion. It is an important poem, central to the issue of Tennyson’s early engagement with metaphysical issues.
