1882. Francis Turner Palgrave, was remembered as the friend of Tennyson, the editor of The Golden Treasury and the twenty-first Professor of Poetry at Oxford. He describes his Golden Treasury: This little collection differs, it is believed, from others in the attempt made to include in it all the best original Lyrical pieces and Songs in our language, by writers not living, and none beside the best. Many familiar verses will hence be met with; many also which should be familiar. The Editor will regard as his fittest readers those who love Poetry so well, that he can offer them nothing not already known and valued.
