A Day with the Poet Tennyson
Tennyson was no recluse. He shunned society in the ordinary London
sense, but he welcomed kindred spirits to his beautiful home, with
large-hearted cordiality. To be acquainted with Farringford was in
itself a liberal education. Farringford was an ideal home for a great
poet. To begin with, it was somewhat secluded and remote from the
world's ways, especially in the early 'fifties, when the Isle of Wight
was much more of a _terra incognita_ than traffic now permits.
