Tennyson's stated, high-minded reasons for suppressing Hallam's note on his "Timbuctoo"-"The poem [Hallam's] is everyway so much better than that wild and unmethodized performance of my own, that even his praise on such a subject would be painful" (6)--may have been quite sincere; but it is hard not to notice that Hallam's poem, as much as Tennyson's, invokes the discovery of a far-off paradise, a "long-lost Atlantis," (7) but only Hallam's refers the search to the brave voyage of Columbus:
