IXIV-THE AGK OF TENXYSOX AXD .
BY YIDA D. SCL'DDER.
We are likely to forget now what was
doubtless a notable factor In the con
sclousless of both poets the nature of
their reception by their contemporaries.
Nothing could present a stronger contrast.
Tennyson, from the flrjrt. was the darling
of the English people; hailed by his college
friends zr the poet of the future even
in his 'prentice days, rejoicing almost
steadily in applause that deepened as
charming volume succeeded volume, hon
ored by the laurel, green from the brow
of Wordsworth, by a substantial pension
from the government, by the favor and
friensdhip of the Queen. No such shower
of prosperity fell to the lot of Browning.
Recognized Indeed from the first by a
chosen spirit here and there, he remained
for many a year In obscurity i far as the
general public was concerned; long ig
nored, and when the bulk and force of his
rwork fairly brought him at last before
the general er still longer the butt of
unintelligent ridicule. Only when he was
Quite an old man, too old to feel much
excitement over human fame, though not
too old to derive pleasure from It, did the
tide turn. When once it turned, how
ever, it rose with surprising, with almost
ludicrous, rapidity. Browning, the neg
lected, lived to pe societies, scattered over
the English-speaking world, gravely de
voted to the study of his works, to win
a sort of treatment perhaps never before
afforded to a living author, to be hailed
npt only as great poet, but as prophet
and spiritual guide. He took his honors
calmly, as one would expect from the poet
of "The Ring and the Book." And now
that it is all over, that we can look back
and appraise his work, we can eee that
the poetry of Browning, like that of Ten
nyson, has become part of the best herit
age of the English race, has entered into
the very blood and sinew of the public
thought and faith, a penetrating, one may
almost say, a re-creating power.
There are many reasons for this differ
ence In the swiftness with which the
work of the two poets found recognition.
One of the2 reasons is patent; It lies
In the contrast of their artistic method.
Tennyson's aim first and always was
fceauty and perfection in style. His work
manship, whether in blank verse or in
lyric, was unrivaled. No modern poet
has given us so many of those
"Jewels live words Ions.
"Which on the stretched forefinger of Time
In Browning, on the other hand, the aim
of art had changed. He cared little for
conscious beauty, though almost incident
ally, as il were, he has given us some
work unsurpassed in loveliness. What he
cared for was slgnficance. To make his
verse full of meaning, to put as much
red-hot experience as polble into the
given line, was his constant effort; and In
this no one has ever succeeded better
than he. It is no wonder that people long
thought him obscure, and that Tennyson
laid the spell of his most melodious num
bers upon the public ear long before the
potent, penetrating force of Browning's
work made itself felt.
At first sight, indeed, the contrast be
tween the poetry of Tennyson and Brown
ing seems striking, absolute and extreme
And yet the longer one thinks and the
more one contemplates them from a dis
tance, with a larger sweep of wisdom,
the more evident it becomes that the
same age gave them birth. In differing
ways their work is the expression of deep,
underlying forces wholly Identical, and
we may read in them. If we will, the
spiritual history of their generation.
Looking at them from this point of view,
what does their vast and varied work re
veal? It shows us in the first place a period
entirely preoccupied with interest in hu
manity and in human experience.
One might suppose that this was always
Daate Gabriel Rnasettl.
the case with poetry, but it had not been
bo in the preceding age. To Wordsworth
end to Shelley nature had been quite as
Important a subject for poetry as man;
the study of her expression in different
phases, the Interpretation of her life, oc
cupied much of their imagination. She
was to them no mere background, but a
mighty, living power, perhaps the chief
joy and the chief consolation granted to
the soul, All this Is changed In the Vic
torian Pools. Nature is still loved, Indeed,
but she has slipped back into a purely
subordinate position, and the drama of
human experience fills the whole fore
ground. "The need of a world of men,"
as Browning puts It, possesses them:
And paint man, man. whatever the Issue,
"Become now self-acQuaintera.
Ss their cry.
The human life on which their gaze is
thus concentrated is life Individual, not
general. The poets of the revolutionary
period had chanted their love of a collec
tive humanity, and their aspirations for
Its freedom. The Victorian poets chant
not man but men. The individual holds
them, and so far as In them lies they
3lpck out the heart of his mystery. Look
at Tennyson's "Maud" or "Knoch Arden."
or that most wonderful searching into
the secrets of a single soul, his "In Me
moriam." Look at Browning's array of
dramatic monologues, his "Andrea del
fiarto," his "Fra Llppo Llppl," his "Bish
op Blougram," his "Monk of the Spanish
Cloister," his "Caliban," his "St, John."
and say whether any age ever added
more tyes of temperament and passion
to the world of the imagination.
Finally, "and most Important, their in
terest centers In men as spiritual and
moral beings. Their characters are no
prey to their passions, as in the Jacobean
drama; they move in freedom. A fatalis
tic materialism threatened, during much
of the time while Tennyson and Browning
were writing, to dominate English
thought. Never for one moment does
either of these great Imaginations yield
to it. Tennyson in "In Memoriam" Is
fighting hard against the Insidious foe:
nobly he wins the day. As for Browning,
in almost his every poem the power of h's
art is expended in fixing attention, breath
less, on one Issue: "Life's business being
Just the terrible choice." shall a given
soul which we are watching at the crls's
of its fate rise or fall? "Life Is proba
tion, and this earth no goal, but starting
point of man." Such is the constant bur
den of his mssage. And the wonderful
thing about his work, as about that of
Tennyson, is the constant vista which it
opens Into the eternal and unseen. Man.
In his little life of action, of passion, of
desire. Is surrounded by spiritual forces,
half guessed, half Ignored, making for re
demption or for loss. This Is the gist and
upshot of all that lovely serW of poems
In which modern fact Is vrllrt In ardent

King." Thl! is the underlving roncIru
ness in nil Brownings" great enrlv drnm-s
as In his monologues, and pre-eminenfy
in the masterpiece of his maturity, "The
Ring and the Book." To compare this
strange, significant epic with the supreme
expression of the mind of the Renaissance
in the Shakespearean drama is to feel how
characteristic of the Victorian age Is this
obsession with the spiritual aspect of hu
man experience. In Shakeeare's plays
the curtain drops at the end. and "tne
rest Is rflence." In Browning's eplc, as
In the leading poems of Tennyson, the
drama proceeds, to be sure, here on this
visible world, but we are aware of mystic
light and melodies through all the natural
sequence, and at the end we remain con
scious that all the lines have converged
toward some unknown yet assured future
In which the action shall tlnd a complete
ness not vouchsafed it here.
In the last analysis the most distinctive
characteristic of our Victorian poetry is
Its witness to the reality of the life of I
the spirit. It Is a pedestrian poetry In a I
way. not winged like that of the period
which preceded. It carries us up no
mountain peaks. Into no blue, mythologi
