Alfred Tennyson (1809-1892) was born in Lincolnshire and educated at Trinity College, Cambridge. The death of his close friend Arthur Hallam moved him to write In Memoriam (1850). In the same year he was appointed Poet Laureate and was elevated to the peerage as Baron Tennyson in 1884. He is buried in Poet's Corner in Westminster Abbey.

4.0 out of 5 stars A wonderful gift 16 Mar 2007
By Book Worm - Published on Amazon.com
While not an avid reader of Tennyson myself, I bought this book for my brother's birthday. I was very impressed. The selection of peices was large and the book printed on high quality paper, with no cramped spaces. The work was presented in a setting very attractive to a poetry reader and was small enough to slip in anywhere. If you want to know about the poetry you will have to read it for yourself, but it was wonderfully presented in this volume.

2.0 out of 5 stars Too much commentary, not enough Tennyson 18 Mar 2007
By Mr. K. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio Cassette
The readers for this audio recording performed satisfactorily. Derek Jacobi was particularly fine. However, there was too much narration between the poems. The commentators should have worked briefly, and before the poems, not between them.

A poor choice for those who expect an uninterrupted stream of beautiful English poetry. We paid for an audio book of Tennyson, not stale controversy about him.

For those interested in better recitations, try the Caedmon listings.
