This book is an old friend; I've been reading it since before I understood half the things he was saying It's not too often you find verses by one of the grand old masters that inspire similar feelings to those called up by a mug of hot chocolate and a huggable teddy bear This is my favorite collection of poetry Tennyson just speaks to me for some reason My first taste of Tennyson was The Lotus Eaters which I studied in High School in connection with The Odyssey I get warm fuzzies just thinking about Tennyson and Homer and tho' we are not that strength which in old days moved earth and heaven; that which we are we are;One eual temper of heroic heartsMade weak in time and fate but strong in willto strive to seek to find and not to yieldIt is a testament to the poetry of this Lord Tennyson that I know those lines by heart Truly my favorite poets are of Irish extraction but I hold a special place in my heart for the words of Tennyson 19th Century poetry is beautiful Tennyson's works are pure bliss When I read his poems I just go off into a distant land in my head and everything else just fades away It's so freaky but I love it and I love Tennyson I can't wait to start on his novels Ahh Hateful is the dark blue skyVaulted o'er the dark blue seaDeath is the end of life; ah whyShould life all labour be?Let us aloneTime driveth onward fastAnd in a little while our lips are dumbLet us aloneWhat is it that will last?All things are taken from us and becomePortions and parcels of the dreadful PastLet us aloneWhat pleasure can we haveTo war with evil? Is there any peaceIn ever climbing up the climbing wave?All things have rest and ripen toward the graveIn silence; ripen fall and ceaseGive us long rest or death dark death or dreamful ease Be near me when my light is lowWhen the blood creeps and the nerves prickAnd tingle; and the heart is sickAnd all the wheels of Being slowfrom 'In Memoriam AHH'A good small volume of selections from Tennyson's poetry Brief passages only from larger works and no critical notes etc Pure lilies of eternal peace Whose odours haunt my dreams page 73 from 'Sir Galahad' Stirring poetry Like I said I'm just not that interested in 19th Century culture Tennyson is one of my favorite poets
