Reflecting his lifelong interest in Arthurian themes, his primary sources were Malory's "Morte d'Arthur" and the Welsh "Mabinogion". For him, the "Idylls" embodied the universal and unending war between sense and soul, and Arthur the highest ideals of manhood and kingship; an attitude totally compatible with the moral outlook of his age. This edition, based on the text authorized by Tennyson himself, contains full critical apparatus.
One of England's most beloved poets, Tennyson's work embodies the ethos of the Victorian era while reflecting the influence of the Romantic poets who came before him. Arranged chronologically, this work contains his famous In Memoriam A.H.H, Idylls of the King, Maud, and other lesser-known works. With an introduction, notes, and bibliography by Karen Hodder. 668 pages, softcover.
