In order for me to write a proper review of the entirety of Tennyson's work, I'll be rating each poem, in reading order. As such, here it goes:

Crossing the Bar 3/5

To the Queen 3/5

Timbuctoo 2/5

Claribel, A Melody 2/5

Boometh, hummeth, cometh, swelleth, dwelleth, lispeth, outwelleth, crispeth, replieth, low-lieth

Can't believe these are all in just one stanza.

Lilian 2/5

"Praying all I can
If prayers will not hush thee,
Airy Lillian
Like a rose-leaf I will crush thee.
Fairy Lillian."

There were better ways to have done this, but I read the entire collected works straight through--man that took a while! I'd always called Tennyson my favorite poet, mostly due to one poem ("Charge of the Light Brigade"), but that was more due to a lack of knowledge of his other works than a deep understanding of his other material. Having gone through everything he wrote, I can highly recommend the poems "Enoch Arden" (as a new father I have yet to get through this without choking up), and "Uly ...more

I've got an 1899 edition with tiny print. After looking unsuccessfully for an ebook of Selected Poems of Tennyson for my Kindle, I compiled my own and have put it on my website
here as a free ebook for epub and mobi. Please help yourself.
It's also up on Scribd here as a pdf.
It's a lot easier on the eyes than my print edition!
I still remember the shiver that went down my spine when I first read the Lotos-Eaters 40 years ago. And I still get it.

I'm actually reading from an 1885 edition of his complete works. Amazingly enough I'm borrowing it from the Library, it's old enough to be in a rare bookstore!

The Lady of Shalott is still my favorite, I haven't found anything to surpass it yet, anyone have recommendations of their favorite Tennyson poem?

I only started to read this because I've read some of the quotes in another book. Over all it was good once you get passed the "old english" parts of it.

By slipping on the skins of the western world's most powerful mythological figures, Tennyson gives them some humanity . . .

Obviously, I did not read this particular edition in 1997 - mine is from 1885... I love Tennyson!

Alfred Tennyson was born in Somersby, Lincolnshire, the fourth of the twelve children of George Tennyson, clergyman, and his wife, Elizabeth. In 1816 Tennyson was sent to Louth Grammar School, which he disliked so intensely that from 1820 he was educated at home until at the age of 18 he joined his two brothers at Trinity College, Cambridge and with his brother Charles published his first book, Po ...more
