Abstract:

The author identifies more than a thousand previously unknown instances in which Tennyson phrases of two or three to as many as several words are similar or identical to those occurring in prior works by other hands - discoveries aided by the proliferation of digitized texts and the related development of powerful search tools over the three decades since the most recent major edition of Tennyson's poems was published. Each of these instances may be deemed an allusion (meant to be recognized as such and pointing, for definable purposes, to a particular antecedent text), an echo (Conscious or note, deliberate or note, meant to be noticed or not, meaningful or not), or merely accidental. Unless accidental, the author writes, these new textual parallels significantly expand our knowledge both of Tennyson's reading and of his thematic intentions and artistic technique. coupled with the thousand-plus textual parallels previously reported by Christopher Ricks and other scholars, he says, they suggest that a fundamental and lifelong aspect of Tennyson's art was his habit of echoing any work, ancient or modern, which had the potential to enhance the resonance or deepened the meaning of his poems. The new textual parallels the author has identified point most often to the King James Bible and to such canonical authors as Shakespeare, Milton, Dryden, pope, Thomson, Cowper, Shelley, Byron, and Wordsworth. But they also point to many authors rarely if ever previously cited in Tennyson editions and studies, including Richard Blackmore, Isaac Watts, James Macpherson, Erasmus Darwin, John Ogilvie, Anna Laetitia Barbault, Thomas Moore, James Montgomery, John Wilson, and - with surprising frequency - Felicia Hemans.
