Some of the finest Victorian poetry grew out of Tennyson's troubled personal life - he and all his eleven siblings suffered some kind of mental health problems, and his beloved friend Hallam died at 22. He succeeded in echoing deep emotions in simple words - 'But a for the touch of a vanish'd hand, / And the sound of a voice that is still!' - and in creating tremendous rhythmic narratives - 'Forward the Light Brigade! / Charge for the guns!' he said. The narration of the 24 poems here does Tennyson proud. - Rachel Redford, The Oldie There's no need to dip into the lesser works in a collection of Tennyson, and Naxos has made a fine selection here, mixing the best known (The Charge of the Light Brigade, The Lady of Shalott, Ulysses, The Lotus-Eaters) with others that will be less familiar to casual readers. One might quibble with some of Michael Pennington's line readings, but he has made thoughtful interpretations, and his voice is quite capable of meeting the musical demands of the poetry. There's nothing new here for Tennyson's fans, but the presentation is a strong introduction to a master's range of style and emotion. - D.M.H., AudioFile


Alfred, Lord Tennyson (1809-92) was born in Lincolnshire, the sixth of eleven children of a clergyman. After a childhood marked by trauma, he went up to Cambridge in 1828, where he met Arthur Hallam, whose premature death had a lasting influence on Tennyson's life and writing. His two volumes of Poems (1842) established him as the leading poet of his generation, and of the Victorian period. He was created Poet Laureate in 1850 and in 1883 accepted a peerage. In T. S. Eliot's words, 'He has three qualities which are seldom found together except in the greatest poets: abundance, variety and complete competence. He had the finest ear of any English poet since Milton.' -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine andere Ausgabe: Taschenbuch.

Some of the worlds great poems read with real insight and emotion 17. Januar 2014
Von pudburton - Veröffentlicht auf
Michael Pennington is a passionate Shakespearian with a long list of stage/screen credits to his name and it shows with this wonderful collection of poems. In my view every word is read with just the right amount of emotion and elegantly bring the poems to life. The tone of Michael Penningtons voice, to my mind, carries an undercurrent of melancholy reflecting Tennysons preoccupation with the beauty of nature, the sufferings and strivings of man and beast and the transient and uncertain nature of all our existencies.

This CD is a must.
Ego poeta qui non poenitet et poetica Victoriana. 10. Mai 2015
Von Roberto Fideli - Veröffentlicht auf
Poetry was magnificent in the classical age. They chanted it with music. And their metric was technically refined. However, also contemporary poetry, often in blank verse, may be stimulating, at least as a help to memory for whom he is a middle age man like me. Tennyson’s biography tells that, with few exceptions, everybody is the faber of his (or her) destiny. He was a poor man not able to complete his university studies in Cambridge and, thanks to his success, he became the poet laureate of Great Britain in 1850. It is natural for me to appreciate straight, intelligent and European persons. Of course, intelligence has no nationality. And I don’t pretend to be above the average. This collection is read by the professional actor Pennington. There are three educational captions that I would like to comment.
“I am a part of all I have met” (Ulysses, 1833). His Ulysses is not a jealous man, but a traveler who peacefully comes to his home. His search for knowledge made him make different experiences. Even when you are wrong according to health rationality memories of the experience remain. Also making mistakes one can behave naturally and be humanly sensitive sometimes.
“Men may come and men may go. But I go on forever” (The brook, 1862). Genetics makes men make sons. If you don’t have them, you can look at your relatives (inclusive fitness). You can try to produce works of art or literature in the search for eternity. At the end you can stay before a flowing river, appreciating the (possible) eternity of some natural things. This is the meaning of this personification of an atheist poet.
“The white rose weeps” (of joy; Come into the garden, Maud, 1857). Since the roman de la rose this flower is symbol of straight carnality and spirituality in European literature.

Fantastic Poetry Introduction 18. August 2011
Von EmilyA - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
I have found no better way to introduce young people to these great poets than through this Poetry for Young People series. I highly recommend it! The poems are well chosen, and by reading through these books the children will easily be able to see a variety of writing styles. The full color pages help bring the poems to life, and keep even the youngest readers/listeners interested. Each book also includes a biography of the poet. These are just all around fun learning!
A great series for children or intro to poetry 24. März 2010

Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
My mom gave me two of the books in this series (Emily Dickinson and Robert Frost) when I was little, and I love them. The illustrations are beautiful and there are explanatory notes for some words that may not be as familiar to children or modern readers. I recommend any of the books in the series.
Colorful presentation 7. September 2013
Von Ellen Musco - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
The colorful illustrations make our poetry more inviting and enjoyable. There are one page selections of very long poems and one or two sentences to explain the gist of the poem.
