Summary
This gorgeous new collection gathers into one concise volume the finest work by Queen Victoria's favourite poet. Whether steeped in sensuous melancholy, as in "Maud," or chivalric, heroic, and allegorical, as in "Morte D'Arthur," Tennyson's poetry epitomises the Victorian age for which he became a spokesperson when named Poet Laureate of England in 1850
