Excerpt from A Study of the Works of Alfred Tennyson, D. C. L., Poet Laureate

A moral truth may be set forth under an abstract or a concrete form. The poet has not much to do with the abstract; the concrete is his Sphere. The concrete form of moral truth is character; the poet's chief concern is with character. But there are philosophical poets, and these deal with abstract truths. In their hands, symbol and metaphor form a garment, if not a body, for the ah stract, and enable it, in some sort, to become concrete. The very essence of the poet's relation to truth lies in his tendency to give it concrete forms. In this respect, the philosopher absolute and the poet absolute, though both, by their very nature, truth-seekers, are antipodal the terms poet, philosophical poet, poetical philosopher, and philo sopher might be used to express the gradations Of the ten dency which differentiates them.

As the poet is not a philosopher, So also he is not a moralist. Didactic poetry is almost a contradiction in terms. The poet's appeal is rather to the moral sentiments than to the conscience direct. Rather by the exhibition, than by the prescription, of goodness, he aims to in¿uence the character. He desires not that you should listen to a sermon, but that, through sympathy with them, you should catch the tone of his noble characters, or that, through healthy moral indignation, there should be awakened in you a keener repugnance to the faults of his baser cha racters. 80, though no moralist, his ultimate aim is wholly moral, and though he never bids you what to do, the direct tendency of his work is always the ennobling of your practical life.
