Published to coincide with the centenary of the death of Alfred Lord Tennyson on 6th October 1892, this illustrated celebration emphasizes the private man behind the public figure. Poet Laureate and favourite of Queen Victoria, Tennyson was hailed as the greatest poet of his generation. Yet, in private, he was to battle with depression and a long family history of mental illness until, relatively late on, his life was transformed by marriage and the birth of his beloved children. Photographs and facsimiles of letters and drafts of poems provide insights into his creative processes.
