About this title


The letters in this volume describe the most remarkable years in the life of one of the most eminent Victorians - the years during which Tennyson published In Memoriam , was married, and became Poet Laureate. His own letters are supported and illuminated by contemporary reviews and descriptions of Tennyson as public figure and private man. A valuable personal insight into the poet whose writings reflect so accurately the exact pitch of his age.
