This volume contains the works of the poet Alfred Lord Tennyson, who was named Poet Laureate of Great Britain and Ireland during the reign of Queen Victoria. Known for his short, lyrical verse, Tennyson is remembered as one of the greatest British poets in history. Notably, one of his earlier works, "In Memorian A.H.H.", is the source for many commonly referred to phrases, including "Tis better to have loved and lost, than never to have loved at all."
