Evidence

From Phillips Brooks"s journal (1883), on a visit to Tennyson"s home: "After dinner, Tennyson and I went up to the study [...] and I had him to myself for two or three hours. We smoked, and he talked of metaphysics, and poetry, and religion, his own life, and Hallam, and all the poems [...] Then we went down to the drawing-room where the rest were, and he read his poetry to us till the clock said twelve -- ""Locksley Hall,"" ""Sir Galahad,"" pieces of ""Maud"" (which he specially likes to read), and some of his dialect poems. He said, by the way, in reading ""Locksley Hall,"" that the verse beginning "Love took up, etc "was the best simile he ever made; and that a certain line in ""The Gardener"s daughter"" were the ones on which he most piqued himself."
