    Tennyson,most representative poet of victorian age expresses the middle class through his poetry. Along with discipline & form, a sense of romantic values & lyricism are the special features of tennyson's poetry. Its beautiful!!!!

    What Tennyson lacks in concise language he makes up for in the beauty of these lyrical verses. The subject matters that this author chooses are all things that if I were to write poetry I would also choose. Gallantry and Chivarly of Knights and Princesses. King Arthur and his court. References to Greek Mythology and a constant fascination with death.

    School text that I rather enjoyed.. We cannot be kind to each other here for even an hour. We whisper, and hint, and chuckle and grin at our brother's shame; however you take it we men are a little breed. - Alfred Lord Tennyson

    Despite all his sentiments & psychotic ideals, Tennyson is amazing. He inspires me to the deepest, and I think I'll go on to love him forever

    Alfred Tennyson is, after Shakespeare and Chaucer, one of the most skilled craftsmen in the English language. He has a way of spinning beautifully memorable lines, such as these from Tithonus: “Far-folded mists, and gleaming halls of morn.” And … “.... Arise And shake the darkness from their loosened manes, And beat the twilight into flakes of fire.” As an avid reader of narrative and dramatic poetry, it’s no surprise that Tennyson is one of my favorite authors.

He has a way of spinning beautifully memorable lines, such as these from Tithonus: “Far-folded mists, and gleaming halls of morn.” And … “.... Arise And shake the darkness from their loosened manes, And beat the twilight into flakes of fire.” As an avid reader of narrative and dramatic poetry, it’s no surprise that Tennyson is one of my favorite authors. He’s written many memorable poems such as Ulysses, Tithonus, The Holy Grail, St. Simeon Stylites, The Lotos Eaters and Morte d’Arthur. (Parts of In Memoriam are also outstanding.) On the reputation of these works alone, he stands among the greatest English poets. The Norton Critical Edition is an excellent collection of Tennyson’s poems, with helpful footnotes throughout. It does a good job of selecting his best works, and culling the dross. I recommend the poems mentioned above. His epic, Idylls of the King, is an interesting failure. Love or hate poetry, I recommend Tennyson. This book is an excellent starting point.

    Everyone Poops

    I know people might want to throw rocks at me for asking, but am I alone in thinking Tennyson's poetry is mostly just an exercise in belletrism with little else to offer? I'm fond of most other major Victorian poets (especially Browning and Rosetti), but Tennyson's work is a real thorn in my side. It's kind of like when I wash my white laundry. All the bright shiny stuff is made of up other Victorian poets. But Tennyson is the gross, almost-brown towel that I cleaned up puke and cat pee with.

    It is hard for a soldier to not love The Charge of the Light Brigade. I love The Eagle, simple and elegant. The Kracken is great as well. I tend to fall with the critics who aren't fans of the Idylls of the King, but some portions are compelling.

    Currently working through "In Memoriam A.H.H." which is as great a poem as everyone in the world, from T.S. Eliot onwards, thinks.

    I like Tennyson, but probably because I really like the Victorian period, and the old British traditions it embodies. Still, poems like Crossing the Bar are memorable and worth reading.

    Tennyson, like his poetry, went on forever. I am pretty fond of Tithonus though.

    Easily my favorite Victorian poet. Christina Rossetti follows somewhere behind. This volume includes "Idylls of the King," "In Memoriam," "The Lady of Shallot," most others.
