...<b>Enoch Arden and Other Poems.</b>, TENNYSON, Alfred Lord
16 TENNYSON, Alfred Lord ...Enoch Arden and Other Poems.
Boston: Ticknor and Company, 1887. Hardcover.

 54 illustration plus tissue guarded frontis. 
Dark Green Cloth covered boards with stamped gilt titles and decorations of a wreath with outlines; All pages outlined in red. Bindings tight and square text clean, lightly toned. Though title page indicates Ticknor as publisher the bottom spine has Stamped Houghton Mifflin & Co. Second tile page after list of illustrations torn.

Born on August 6, 1809, in Somersby, Lincolnshire, England, Alfred Tennyson is one of the most well-loved Victorian poets and by the mid-19th century had come to occupy a position similar to that of Alexander Pope in the 18th.

Tennyson was a consummate poetic artist, consolidating and refining the traditions bequeathed to him by his predecessors in the Romantic movement-especially Wordsworth, Byron, and Keats. His poetry is remarkable for its metrical variety, rich descriptive imagery, and exquisite verbal melodies.

Tennyson may be seen as the first great English poet to be fully aware of the new picture of man's place in the universe revealed by modern science. While the contemplation of this unprecedented human situation sometimes evoked his fears and forebodings, it also gave him a larger imaginative range than most of the poets of his time and added a greater depth and resonance to his art.

...<b>Enoch Arden and Other Poems</b>, TENNYSON, Alfred Lord

Boston: Ticknor and Company, 1865. Hardcover.

 
Green pebbled leather with stamped gilt titles and decoration. All edges gilt. Bindings firm, though one plate seems to have been reinserted. Light handling wear. Tissue-guarded illustrations throughout. 7.75 inches tall, 78 pages.

Born on August 6, 1809, in Somersby, Lincolnshire, England, Alfred Tennyson is one of the most well-loved Victorian poets and by the mid-19th century had come to occupy a position similar to that of Alexander Pope in the 18th. Tennyson was a consummate poetic artist, consolidating and refining the traditions bequeathed to him by his predecessors in the Romantic movement-especially Wordsworth, Byron, and Keats. His poetry is remarkable for its metrical variety, rich descriptive imagery, and exquisite verbal melodies.

Tennyson was also regarded as the preeminent spokesman for the educated middle-class Englishman, in moral and religious outlook and in political and social consciousness no less than in matters of taste and sentiment. His poetry dealt often with the doubts and difficulties of an age in which established Christian faith and traditional assumptions about man's nature and destiny were increasingly called into question by science and modern progress. His poetry dealt with these misgivings, moreover, as the intimate personal problems of a sensitive and troubled individual inclined to melancholy. Yet through his poetic mastery-the spaciousness and nobility of his best verse, its classical aptness of phrase, its distinctive harmony-he conveyed to sympathetic readers a feeling of implicit reassurance, even serenity.

Tennyson may be seen as the first great English poet to be fully aware of the new picture of man's place in the universe revealed by modern science. While the contemplation of this unprecedented human situation sometimes evoked his fears and forebodings, it also gave him a larger imaginative range than most of the poets of his time and added a greater depth and resonance to his art.
