Alfred Tennyson Tennyson, 1st Baron (tĕn´Ĭsən), 1809–92, English poet. The most famous poet of the Victorian age, he was a profound spokesman for the ideas and values of his times. Early Life and Works. Tennyson was the son of an intelligent but unstable clergyman in Lincolnshire. His early literary attempts included a play, The Devil and the Lady, composed at 14, and poems written with his brothers Frederick and Charles but entitled Poems by Two Brothers (1827)

Although Tennyson (1809-1892) has often been characterized as an austere, bearded patriarch and laureate of the Victorian age, his poems speak clearly to the imagination of the late 20th century. His mastery of rhyme, metre, imagery and mood communicate their dark, sensuous and sometimes morbid messages. Much given to melancholy and feelings of aching desolation, Tennyson's verse also carries clear messages of hope: 'Ring out the old, ring in the new', and 'Tis better to have loved and lost/Than never to have loved at all'.

The reason we still go to Keats, and Yeats, and Tennyson, and Wordsworth is the power of the words and the way it opens the mind to see life in spectrums of beauty and melancholy.

If you are approaching poetry for the first time and are unsure where to go. This volume is a very strong start.

This book is *not* the complete works of Alfred Tennyson! It is a very poor reproduction of an old book, page for page, except that half of the pages are too dark to be even remotely legible. It is literally a page-by-page scan of an old document. The publisher says on the inside of the book: "This important reprint was made from an old and scarce book. Therefore, it may have deefects such as missing pages, erroneous pagination, blurred pages, missing text, poor pictures, markings, marginalia and other issues beyond our control..." this is putting it mildly. The scans are quite literally unreadable. I find that there is no reason whatsoever to purchase this book and am very disappointed that Amazon posted no description so I was unaware of what I was actually buying.

I purchased this to compare the prints he used with his poetry for a reference project. Unfortunately, copies of the prints used and tied to his original poems were not in the book. But quality of the book was fine.

I love Tennyson,but this type is so small it is very hard to read.

I ordered this copy of The Complete Poetical Works of Alfred, Lord Tennyson because it was not as expensive as other complete collections. I wish I had know, however, what "classic reprint" meant. If you actually want to be able to read any of the poems or plays, purchase a different copy. The font in this book is smaller than a size 8, and although it has been "digitally restored" it is still faded and difficult to decipher. I am relatively young with good eye sight, and I have never had problem reading smaller print. The text in this edition, however, is ridiculously small and unreadable. If you want to get this for a fancy looking coffee table book, go ahead. But if you actually want to be able to READ the works of Tennyson, spend your money on something else.

This is literally a book that is a photo copy of another older book. a large portion of the pages are blank, crossed out, doubled, or otherwise unreadable. The fact that this book is even allowed an ISBN number is an atrocity. My candid advice is to not get this book and keep looking, because this book basically gives the middle finger to Alfred Lord Tennyson.

I love to read old, musty books.
Of Tennyson's poems, In Memoriam A. H. H. and Maud stand out as personal favourites. In these poems he evokes a gentle blend of melancholy, connectedness with the land and countryside, and a tangible sense of the eternity of life and nature and ones personal destiny within these. His poems are mesmerizing, his rhythmic language and masterful blending of words draws a reader in, and has a hypnotic effect. He isn't trite, clumsy, or contrived. His subjects share the spirit of the Pre-Raphaelite painter's subjects, they are often brooding, forlorn, existing an empty, melancholic, roaming life in a garden of Eden. To the reader, his subjects are real, full and beautiful and are at once human and metaphysical.
