A sourcebook of Victorian literary life, the diary of the Anglo-Irish poet William Allingham was first published in 1907.

Tennyson is the central character of the book, talking and walking, airing his prejudices, reading his poems - "Allingham, would it disgust you if I read 'Maud'? Would you expire?"--And shown in many of the intimate revealing trivialities of his daily life.
