Wall Street Journal[edit]

Cultural influence[edit]

William Wordsworth cannot have written a rebuttal to "Locksley Hall Sixty Years After", since that poem was published in 1886, and Wordsworth died in April 1850. He may, however, have written a rebuttal to "Locksley Hall", which was published in Tennyson's 1842 collection of poems. Paulannis (talk) 10:42, 29 November 2007 (UTC)

Date of writing[edit]

Was it written in 1835 or 1838? Sources differ. Danceswithzerglings (talk) 02:34, 31 December 2008 (UTC)

"Prophetic"? Really?[edit]

I think that term is a bit over-the-top, particularly with reference to a "new world order". In any case, there's no reference for the claims, so I'm deleting them. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 00:21, 8 February 2012 (UTC)

Ok, so I only deleted the NWO reference and amended the other parts to reflect a "prescient" interpretation. As in, "Tennyson was a smart guy who made some good predictions" instead of "Tennyson was given this knowledge of the future by a higher power". — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 00:36, 8 February 2012 (UTC)

"Locksley Hall" is one of his lesser-known works.[edit]

Huh?  What is the basis for this claim?  Kdammers (talk) 01:45, 8 January 2013 (UTC)
