Scholarly Commentary


The printed note accompanying the poem describes it as “the first of two unpublished poems” that the editor proposed to print. No second poem was published. The text was supplied to the periodical by Edward Dannreuther, to whom “a copy was given by the poet” and “one of whose finest songs (also unpublished) is founded on it”.

The poem had in fact been published several years earlier (in 1877).
