Norman Page's selection represents Tennyson's work in many poetic forms over more than sixty years. The poems have been chosen to exemplify Tennyson's dual role as public and private poet - as spokesman for the anxieties of his age, and as an introspective, sometimes neurotic individual. The substantial introduction, explanatory notes and bibliographical information make this collection an essential study tool for students.
