James R. Kincaid, Aerol Arnold Professor of English, University of Southern California


Note 12 to Chapter 5 of the author's Tennyson's Major Poems, which Yale University Press published in 1975. It has been included in the Victorian Web with the kind permission of the author, who of course retains copyright.

There is an excellent discussion of the role time plan in the poem by J. C. C. Mays. He argues that it is time which resolves opposites and solves the problems in the poem.
