A beautiful hardcover selection of the best poems from Alfred, Lord Tennyson. AN EVERYMAN'S LIBRARY POCKET POET.

Alfred, Lord Tennyson was a more complex writer than his status as Queen Victoria’s favorite poet might suggest. Though capable of rendering rapture and delight in the most exquisite verse, in another mode Tennyson is brother in spirit to Poe and Baudelaire, the author of dark, passionate reveries. And though he treasured poetic tradition, his work nevertheless engaged directly with the great issues of his time, from industrialization and the crisis of faith to scientific progress and women’s rights. A master of the short, intense lyric, he can also be sardonic, humorous, voluptuous, earthy, and satirical.

This collection includes Tennyson’s most famous poems, as well as extracts from all the major masterpieces—“Idylls of the King,” “The Princess,” “In Memoriam,” “The Lotos-Eaters”—and several complete long poems.

Including:

• “The Lady of Shalott”
• “The Charge of the Light Bridgade”
• “Break, Break, Break”
• “Come into the Garden, Maud”
• “Ulysses”
• “Demeter and Persephone”
• “Morte d’Arthur”
 
Everyman's Library pursues the highest production standards, printing on acid-free cream-colored paper, with full-cloth cases with two-color foil stamping, decorative endpapers, silk ribbon markers, European-style half-round spines, and a jewel-toned jacket.
Alfred, Lord Tennyson was a British poet. He was the Poet Laureate of Great Britain and Ireland during the reign of Queen Victoria.
