Overview

Alfred Tennyson by Adam Roberts, Alfred Lord Tennyson

Tennyson was acclaimed in his own day as the chief poetic voice of his age, and he remains one of the most highly regarded masters of the music and mood of poetry. This Oxford Authors edition selects extensively from Tennyson's entire career, beginning with his striking juvenilia, through his career as Poet Laureate and to the powerful poetry he wrote in his ninth decade. It contains over sixty poems, including such classics as "The Lady of Shalott," "Morte DArthur," "Break Break Break," "Locksley Hall," "Ulysses," "The Charge of the Light Brigade," and "Tears, Idle Tears." It also includes in its entirety Tennyson's quasi-feminist epic The Princess, as well as the whole of In Memoriam, Maud, Enoch Arden, and several of the Idylls of the King.

The poems are augmented with a broad selection from Tennyson's letters, as well as relevant passages from his son Hallam Tennyson's Memoir of his father, where Tennyson talks widely about his own poetry and the writing of others. The edition as a whole provides the most comprehensive one-volume representation of Tennyson's particular genius.
