Tucker’s argument is compelling and provocative, and will, I think, motivate a revaluation of Tennyson’s significance. Tucker is wonderful at showing how rich and skillful Tennyson’s poems are. [His] prose is a delight. It is clear, elegant, and often witty. The scholarship is exemplary.—Carol Christ

The most authoritative study of the first half of Tennyson’s career…and arguably the best book on Tennyson ever written. As a display of (to paraphrase Tennyson) tracking suggestion through wordy snares to its inmost cell, it is without parallel.—Clyde de L. Ryals
