Overview

Tennyson’s central poem is presented with an extensive introduction that provides background information on the poet and poem as well as an overview of In Memoriam’s formal and thematic peculiarities, including Tennyson’s use of the stanza and the poem’s rhyme scheme.

David Shaw), reader-response (Timothy Peltason), queer (Jeff Nunokawa), and genre (Alan Sinfield) criticism. A chapter from Christopher Ricks’s influential biography, Tennyson, is included.
A Chronology, Selected Bibliography, and Index of First Lines are also included.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“This is a very helpful edition which will be of great value to the student reader. Rowlinson’s introduction, notes and appendices supply the reader with intelligent and useful contextual information and offer an engaging, thoroughly informed guide to the ways in which the poem has been read since first publication.” — Kirstie Blair, University of Stirling
