Tennyson's newly published Idylls of the King selling strongly in England
Alfred, Lord Tennyson published the first four of what were to be twelve idylls under the title Idylls of the King at the end of June. The issue, containing the stories of Enid, Vivien, Elaine, and Guinevere, sold 10,000 copies in six weeks and received almost universally glowing reviews. (By John Osborne)
