No Flaws or Blemishes but minimal retail handling; Still Gift Quality. Dust Jacket with price is in a new clear protective Mylar sleeve. First Edition, First Printing. ---------Levi ventures forth with personal charm and sensitivity as though the poet stood watching his writing desk; it's a pleasure to read literary biography that conveys love for its subject without sacrificing objectivity toward his flaws. Levi excels in the context of literary scholarship and influences upon Tennyson; he persuasively corrects false notions about a brooding and self-obsessed man. -------- Of special interest is Levi's analysis of Arthur Hallum, to whom Tennyson dedicated his greatest poem, In Memoriam. Levi's Tennyson confirms Benjamin Jowett's image of a poet characterized by truthfulness, vitality, and liberty who "would have wished that, like Shakespeare, his life might be unknown to posterity." ...From Library Journal
