Michael Thorn's massive biography of Alfred, Lord Tennyson was published in 1993, and has by now quietly but firmly taken its place as the standard life. Now in this masterly essay - which draws upon all the resources of his biography - he introduces the Victorian poet as he ought to be introduced. Not as a typical Victorian bard or as a model of Freudian vicissitudes haunted by forbidden desires, but as a highly capable and deeply interesting and gifted poet. Gone are all the cliches and wrongly received ideas, such as that Tennyson was an exceptionally stupid man; in their place is a full and appreciative portrait, presenting Tennyson as weak when he was weak, but as unexpectedly strong in some poems that many contemporary readers might otherwise pass by. Thorn shows, too, that Tennyson remained creative right until the end of his long life.
