So I am left to pass a day of cultured leisure and to meditate on the felicity of the Tennysonian "infinite torment of flies."
They are those of a Tennysonian, and, no doubt, would be other than they are if the writer were younger than he is.
He is poeta more than vates, and he is least Tennysonian in a poem like "Maud."

Measured by the Tennysonian standard it is often needlessly rugged and eccentric.

The poem is not destitute of Tennysonian cadence, and ends, not inappropriately, with “All was night.”
However, Miss Elaine seemed very well satisfied with herself and her Tennysonian title.
The dramas, less than the lyrics, and even less than the “Idylls,” are matter for the true Tennysonian.
