1899. Poet of the Victorian age, who succeeded Wordsworth as Poet Laureate. The poems in this volume belong to two distinct epochs in Tennyson's life-the first being properly Juvenilia, written before he had completed his twenty-third year, while he was still more or less a trifler and a dilettante, and his work was crude and trivial; the second appearing nearly ten years subsequently, after the death of Hallam and after the severe castigation which the preceding poems had received in the Quarterly Review. Some of the more notable poems in this edition would be Mariana, The Recollections of the Arabian Nights, the Dying Swan, the Ode to Memory, Oriana and The Dirge and others.
