One of the key works in the nineteenth-century battle between science and Scripture, Charles Lyell's Principles of Geology sought to explain the geological state of the modern Earth by considering the long-term effects of observable natural phenomena.

Principles of Geology

Written with clarity and a dazzling intellectual passion, it is both a seminal work of modern geology and a compelling precursor to Darwinism, exploring the evidence for radical changes in climate and geography across the ages and speculating on the progressive development of life. A profound influence on Darwin, Principles of Geology also captured the imagination of contemporaries such as Melville, Emerson, Tennyson and George Eliot, transforming science with its depiction of the powerful forces that shape the natural world.

Lyell's book questioned common Christian beliefs of a time of catastrophic change for the Earth, and insetad proposed that the " formation of Earth's crust took place through countless small changes occurring over vast periods of time, all according to known natural laws" "Charles". While many of Lyell's suggestions have now been deemed entirely wrong, we can examine the impact that this groundbreaking text would have had on the people of Victorian London, more specifially on Tennyson.

Tennyson's poem while sometimes seen as merely a poem of a crisis of faith. However, it is also about Tennyson's crisis of doubt. Lyell's text, while challenging beliefs, also attempts to reconcile science and religion. Tennyson's poem is also a narrative that looks at his crisis of faith, but because it was still so important to him, his poem also becomes one where we can the "crisis of faith and the crisis of doubt are emphatically part of the same crisis" Davis.
