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."

Christian McKay
By slipping on the skins of the western world's most powerful mythological figures, Tennyson gives them some humanity . . .
his work is my all-time favorite!!!

Recommends it for: Poetry lovers
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.
Truly a wonderful collection of literature. Loved it!
Printed by Macmillan & Co. in 1892
