his neutrality in politics, and his habit of shrinking from

profligate court and of a turbulent people without being
guilty of any great subserviency to either."

of Art," it excited comparatively little attention. Not
until 1842, with the appearance of two volumes of "Eng
lish Idylls, and other Poems," containing "Locksley
Hall," " The Talking Oak," " The Two Voices," " Dora, 1
" Morte d'Arthur," and other masterpieces, did Tennyson
take his rightful place at the head of all living English
poets. "The Princess, a Medley," appeared in 1847
and " In Memoriam," a tribute to the memory of his
friend Arthur H. Hallam, was issued anonymously in
1850. Among Tennyson's other works the following
may be mentioned in the order of their issue : " Maud
and other Poems," (1855,) the first four "Idylls of the
King," ("Enid," "Vivien," "Elaine," "Guinevere,"
(1859,) " Enoch Arden, and other Poems," (1864,) " The
Holy Grail, and other Poems," (1870,) "Gareth anc
Lynette, and other Poems," (1872,) "Idylls of the King,'
complete, comprising seven of the poems included in the
last two volumes, together with the poems issued in
1855, (1873,) the dramas "Queen Mary," (1875,)
"Harold," (1876,) "Becket," (1884,) "The For-
esters," (1892,) and later volumes of ballads anc
lyrics. In 1850 he succeeded Wordsworth as poet-
laureate, and in 1853 removed to Farringford, in the
Isle of Wight. Died October 6, 1892.

" It seems to me," says Mr. Stedman, in his " Vic
torian Poets," " that the only just estimate of Tennyson's
position is that which declares him to be, by eminence
the representative poet of the recent era ; not, like one
or another of his compeers, representative of the melody
wisdom, passion, or other partial phase of the era, bui
of the time itself, with its diverse elements in harmonious
conjunction. In his verse he is as truly the 'glass of
fashion and the mould of form' of the Victorian genera-
tion in the nineteenth century as Spenser was of the
Elizabethan court, Milton of the Protectorate, Pope of the
reign of Queen Anne."

His brother FREDERICK, (1807-1898,) contributed

TERENCE, ta'ro.sss'; It. TERENZIO, ti-reVze-o,] or, more
fully, FubTius Teren'tius A'fer, a celebrated Roman
comic poet, born at Carthage about 195 B.C. At an early
age he became the slave of a Roman senator, named
Terentius Lucanus, who gave him a good education, to
which he added the gift of liberty. Terence was on in-
timate terms with Scipio Africanus Minor and Laelius,
who are said to have aided him in the composition of his
Dlays. His first work, entitled " Andria," was performed



at Rome in i66_B.c, He produced " Hecyra" in 165,
Heauton-timorumenos")



and "The Self-Tormentor"



n 163. Three other of his plays have come down to us,

viz., "Adelphi," "Phormio," and "Eunuchus."
After he had written these, he travelled in Greece, and

translated, it is said, one hundred and eight of Menan-
der's comedies. He never returned to Rome, but died

n 159 or 158 B.C. His works are models of elegant
diction and pure Latinity. They were praised by Czsar
and Cicero, and are said to have escaped the censures
of the Church. He is deficient in vis comica, (" comic

>ower," or " broad humour,") but, according to Horace,
excels in art. (Epistle II. 1. 59.) The kindly human
sympathy manifested by Terence contributed not a little

o the popularity of his dramas. When the words

" Homo sum ; human! nihfl a me nlienum puto,"*
were spoken on the Roman stage, they were received

>y all classes with tumultuous and reiterated applause.

iis plays have been translated into English by George
Colman.

'lave not been satisfactorily explained; but this act is

;enerally considered to have left a stain on the reputation

f Cicero. Terentia appears to have been a woman of

ood sense and great firmness of character. She is said

o have attained the extraordinary age of one hundred

nd three years.
