Millais, ‘Grandmother’s Apology’, 1859. Illustration for Once a Week
Millais Grandmothers Apology
“The Grandmother’s Apology”
from Once A Week 1.3 (16 July 1859): 41-43. Throughout his later career, Tennyson’s poems often appeared first in periodical form, as here, with an illustration by the Pre-Raphaelite artist John Everett Millais. As with many of Tennyson’s works, “The Grandmother’s Apology” was quickly reprinted in an American periodical — in this case, Harper’s Weekly.
