‘Lord Tennyson on Literary Art. Authorship, Poetry and Books.(From Saturday’s Melbourne “Age”.) His Excellency the Governor-General delivered an interesting speech on literary subjects at Ballarat last evening to the officers and members of the South-street Debating Society and Literary Institute....""After this digression, let me, for your own good and happiness, urge your literary students and others here to read something worth reading every day, if only for five minutes, and think over it. But whether you read the penny sheet or the volume, “they may speak of things seen and unseen, of sciences or of art, of what has been or what is to be; they may amuse or weary us, flatter or scorn us, if they do not assist to make us better and more substantial human beings “they are useless and worse than useless, for they may consume and destroy us ...I will repeat what I have said before to Australians, that on the whole our English literature is the grandest in the world, and it is worth anyone’s while to spend much time and pains in the study of it. Australians can never fail to find self-respect in having such a splendid heritage,and I feel certain that, as an individual branch of English literature – an American literature, revealing American life and thought – has arisen, so surely as I stand here an individual Australian literature will arise, as a worthy offshoot of our English literature, which will be a glory to Australia, and which will come in future to Great Britain to reinvigorate and reinstruct the writers of the noble old mother country ... The best books and the best passages in books are, I need not remind you, some of our best friends. Some of these friends are for the season, some are helpful to our work in hand, some of them are our trusted companions for life. Not a few of us find great pleasure in reading great authors aloud, and in seeing how they strike out fresh thoughts and fresh emotions from ourselves and others, as steel sparks from flint;or,to take another metaphor, as star to star vibrates light, may not,even though the author be dead,soul to soul strike through the thoughts and fancies of a book, and “so from afar touch us at once”. My old friend Professor Sedgewick, of Cambridge, would say,“I may not be able to teach you, but I can
