A compendium of Works,
This review is from: The Works of Alfred Lord Tennyson (Wordsworth Poetry Library) (Paperback)
This is a comprehensive collection of Tennyson's works under one cover. I bought this edition having mislaid my original. I wanted to re-read In Memoriam. This very long poem is published in full, all too often versions are abridged nowadays, good to see the complete text. In the book there are one or two typographical errors (quite amusing in places); normally these associate with the first word of line. My only other minor complaint is the font size. It is quite small but the trade off is size and price of volume against this aspect. Overall a good book for anyone wanting a solid collection at a very affordable price (undergraduates take note!).

Dr. P. S. Mccarthy says:
I'm not sure what book you were reading when you wrote of In Memoriam 'This very long poem is published in full..' as it does not appear at all. To add insult to injury I bought the book because of this comment. So beware book cover titles like 'The Works of Alfred, Lord Tennyson' which should recite 'Some of the Works of Alfred, Lord Tennyson'. After that beware of reviewer's comments.
