Editorial Reviews

From the Inside Flap

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 to 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, of course, such celebrated poems as ?The Lady of Shalott? and ?The Charge of the Light Brigade.? There are extracts from all the major masterpieces??Idylls of the King,? ?The Princess,? ?In Memoriam??and several complete long poems, such as ?Ulysses? and ?Demeter and Persephone,? that demonstrate his narrative grace. Finally, there are many of the short lyrical poems, such as ?Come into the Garden, Maud? and ?Break, Break, Break,? for which he is justly celebrated. --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

About the Author

Emily Bronte was born on 30 July 1818. Her father was curate of Haworth, Yorkshire, and her mother died when she was five years old, leaving five daughters and one son. In 1824 Charlotte, Maria, Elizabeth and Emily were sent to Cowan Bridge, a school for clergymen's daughters, where Maria and Elizabeth both caught tuberculosis and died. The children were taught at home from this point on and together they created vivid fantasy worlds which they explored by writing stories. Emily worked briefly as a teacher in 1938 but soon returned home. In 1846, Emily's poems were published alongside those of her sisters, Charlotte and Anne, in Poems by Currer, Ellis and Acton Bell. The following year Wuthering Heights was published. Emily Bronte died of consumption on 19 December 1848. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

This is one of the best collections of Tennyson's poems I have ever read. Tennyson's wonderful poems are artfully compiled into this book. I would recommend it to anyone who loves Tennyson's poetry or just wants to see what its all about.

This book (and all in the portable poets collection from Everyman's Library) is wonderfully presented, bound, printed and the size is truly perfect for carrying around day to day or packing for a trip. The selection of Tennyson's work is broad - as such it is has something for everyone and every occasion, though if you have or desire a complete collection your money would be best spent elsewhere, unless you don't mind duplicates. As with all Everyman's Library publications it is hardcover with a nice cloth page marker, making it all the more portable.

10 of 10 people found the following review helpful By R. G. Keeling on July 13, 2007
Format: Hardcover
According to Wikipedia , Tennyson is the second most quoted author in the English language, after Shakespeare. This collection provides a surprisingly broad survey of a poetic career spanning more than sixty years. The book is portable , attractively packaged and needing you, to take it on a trip to mountain or beach.( Or a mid-winter's read by the fireside.) The selections are often stirring and profound and there is an over-arching ambience of melancholia...." Come down , o maid , from yonder mountain height "...It's all high drama I tell ye.
