  • Allusions

    • The title of this episode is an allusion to a merciless "Nature, red in tooth and claw" from Lord Tennyson's 1850 poem 'In Memoriam A.H.H.'It is a requiem for the poet's Cambridge friend Arthur Henry Hallam, who died suddenly of a cerebral hemorrhage in Vienna in 1833. The poem was a favourite of Queen Victoria's, who found it a comfort after Prince Albert's death in 1861.
