40 TENNYSON AND BROWNING IN THE 1830S The ‘flowing’ philosophers were being redefined in terms of the new physics, astronomy and geology at Cambridge. William Whewell, Master of Trinity when Tennyson was at Cambridge, and whose speculations he would have known, was deeply involved in theorising astronomy in terms of flux. He opened up a world in which the stability of the universe could not be guaranteed. The poem is part of this new discourse. Whewell was to write later in volume III of the Bridgewater Treatises (On Astronomy and General Physics, 1833): The fact really is, that changes are taking place in the motions of the heavenly bodies, which have gone on progressively from the first dawn of science….

From being a sectarian and Unitarian organ with radical traditions it became a more overtly political journal with the aim of forging a Utilitarian, Benthamite aesthetic. Fox’s aim was to deepen and enrich the Benthamite tradition by correcting misapprehensions of it and associating it above all with literature.

Though both were coterie poets until the 1840s, both dominated the century. Tennyson’s hold on intellectuals loosened in the 1860s after the watershed of the Crimean war, though his general popularity grew. Browning’s appeal was restricted to intellectuals until the 1890s and spread to a wider group subsequently. Even while Tennyson seemed an old-fashioned and tedious writer to young poets, particularly after the publication of Edward Fitzgerald’s version of The Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam in 1859, the aesthetics of the Hallam group was reappropriated and reinterpreted in different ways by other groups almost until the end of the century.
