    "The Princess"

  1. Author: Tennyson, Alfred, Lord
    Title: "The Princess"
    Date: 1847
    Genre: poetry
    Note Relating to Cather: In a 1901 Journal article, Cather misquotes Tennyson in her piece on North Pole exploration, writing, "Ah, dark and true and tender is the north!" In "Eric Hermannson's Soul," Eric is described much like "Tennyson's amorous Prince": "A prince I was, blue-eyed, and fair in face,/ Of temper amorous, as the first of May,/ With lengths of yellow ringlet, like a girl,/ For on my cradle shone the Northern star."
