Born in England in 1809, Alfred, Lord Tennyson began writing poetry as a boy. He was first published in 1827, but it was not until the 1840s that his work received regular public acclaim. His “In Memoriam” (1850), which contains the line “Tis better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all,” cemented his reputation. Tennyson was Queen Victoria’s poet laureate from 1850 until his death in 1892.
In this talk we look at the life and poetry of Tennyson and why we is one of Britain’s best loved poets.
