About this book
A new biography of Lord Alfred Tennyson, the Queen's Laureate from 1850 until his death in 1892. Presents a Tennyson who is stronger, more self-reliant and business-like than previous biographies have displayed.
Alfred Lord Tennyson, Queen Victoria's favourite poet, commanded a wider readership than any other of his time. This biography shows him as a Romantic as well as a Victorian, exploring both the poems and Tennyson's attempts at play writing, as well as the pressures of his age and the personal relationships that made the man.
