Robert Browning to Elizabeth Barrett, letter postmarked 14 June 1845: "When I ask my wise self what I really do remember of that Prize-poem -- the answer is -- both of Chapman"s lines a-top, quite worth any prize for the quoter -- then, the good epithet of ""green Europe"" contrasting with Africa -- then, deep in the piece, a picture of a vestal in a vault [...] I read the poem many years ago, and never since -- tho" I have an impression that the versification is good."

Notes
Tennyson won Chancellor's Gold Medal for 'Timbuctoo' whilst a student at Cambridge, in 1829. Browning took a copy of Prolusiones Academicae, a pamphlet containing Cambridge University prize poems for 1829, on visit to Barrett on 11 June 1845; see p.261 n.2 in source. Source eds. also note that lines used as Tennyson's epigraph have never been identified in any work by George Chapman; see p.265 n.2 in source, and The Poems of Tennyson (1969), ed. Christopher Ricks, p.171n.
