Alfred Lord Tennyson

There were many English poets who made great published works during the 18th century. But one of the most celebrated poets during this time was Alfred Lord Tennyson. Among his notable works was “Idylls of the King” which was published in the year 1885. Although this collection of poems was great, many other analysts still hail “The Charge of the Light Brigade” as his topmost quality work. Because Queen Victoria was a big fan of him, he was appointed as United Kingdom’s Poet Laureate in the year 1850 until he died in 1892.

Unlike other poets who were fixated at specific genres, Tennyson actually took inspiration from different facets of life, from nature, and even from myths and legends. The writing style of Tennyson was described to be extremely creative and descriptive which was a result of his vast imagination. But aside from that, Tennyson also mastered the craft of poetry as he made sure that he revised his work to make it better.

Tennyson’s technical abilities when writing poems did not diminish the depth and the strength of his lines. In addition to that, readers could also get a sense of Tennyson’s personality while reading his works. Even when he was already entering the 80’s, he was still writing and revising his manuscripts which reflected his true passion for poetry.
