Overview

Tennyson was the most important poet of the Victorian age. His long life covered most of the nineteenth-century, he knew the key Victorian figures and was deeply involved in Victorian science, religion, philosophy, politics and culture. His life and poetry give a unique insight into the period. For the first time, the Palgrave Literary Dictionary gives easy access, under more than 400 headings, to an enormous range of information on his poetry, his circle, the period and its contexts. We have aimed above all for readability. Entries range from brief factual definitions to longer, more discursive essays and cover poets, from Burns to Wordsworth, places, from America to Wales, and themes, from Friendship to War, as well as abundant information on individual poems and wider poetic themes. Students will quickly find the academic, biographical or critical information they need, while more general readers can browse and gain a rich and fascinating picture of Tennyson and his age.
