The great Victorian poet Tennyson is the 9th most quoted author in The Oxford Dictionary of Quotations. He never considered any career but that of poet and he was hugely popular throughout the 19th century. He also exerted a great influence on Victorian artists, especially those in the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood.

Learn about his extremely difficult childhood, the close friendship which inspired his masterpiece In Memoriam, his late and very happy marriage, and his relationship with his Queen.  And enjoy hearing some of his loveliest poems, such as The Lady of Shalott, read and discussed.
