Early Life

Alfred lord tennyson was born on August 6, 1809, in Somersby, Lincolnshire. In the United Kingdom, he was a poet laureate during the reign of Queen Victoria. He was also one of the best-known poets in English literature. People who came before him were Wordsworth, Byron, and Keats. He kept and improved on the traditions of the Romantic Movement. His poetry was thought to be very good because it had a lot of different metres, rich descriptive imagery, and beautiful verbal melodies. It ranged from medieval legends to classical myths and from home situations to nature observations that he talked about in his work. When you read his poems, you can see that he was very good at writing short lyrics. His other important works are “Idylls of the King,” “Ulysses,” and “Tithonus.” Because many of his words are used today in English literature, It’s better to have loved and lost than never have loved at all. “Nature, red in tooth and claw,” “T” is better to have loved and lost than never have loved at all,” “Knowledge comes, but Wisdom lasts.” When you look at the Oxford Dictionary of Quotations, after Shakespeare, Tennyson is the second most popular author.

Childhood, Family and Schooling

When Alfred Tennyson was born on August 6, 1809, he was born in the English town of Somersby. He would be one of his parents’ 11 living children, since their first child died in infancy. It was a big family for Tennyson. He had two older brothers, four younger brothers, and four younger sisters. Tennyson’s father was a church rector who made a good amount of money. Because the family was so big, they had to keep an eye on their money. Tennyson only went to Louth Grammar School (where he was bullied) for a few years. It was his well-educated father who looked after the rest of his education before he went to college. Tennyson and his siblings were raised to love reading and writing. By the time he was 8, Tennyson had written his first poem.

Personal Life

He married Emily Sellwood on June 13, 1850, in the village of Shiplake, and they had a son. It wasn’t until Tennyson’s brother married Emily’s younger sister, Louisa, that the two got to know each other better. In August 1852, Hallam Tennyson was born. Lionel was born on March 16, 1854.

Writing Career

He had his first poem published in Poems by Two Brothers in 1827. (though actually, three Tennyson brothers contributed to the volume). It was the same year that Tennyson started going to Trinity College at Trinity College in Cambridge, where his two older brothers also went to school. There, Tennyson met Arthur Hallam and became close friends with him. They joined a group of students called the Apostles, which called itself the Apostles. He also kept writing poetry, and in 1829, he won the Chancellor’s Gold Medal for the poem “Timbuctoo,” which he wrote. In 1830, Tennyson published his first solo book: Poems, Most of them Lyrical.

His father died in 1831. His death made things more difficult for the family, and Tennyson didn’t finish his degree. In the beginning, Tennyson was told to find a job, as his father did. He was also told to join the church like his father did. The young man, on the other hand, was determined to work on poetry. Tennyson had a bad year in 1833, because his second collection of poetry was slammed a lot. He decided not to write another poem for the next ten years, so he didn’t write any more. The same year, Arthur Hallam died of a brain haemorrhage in Vienna. Tennyson was deeply hurt by the death of Arthur Hallam, which changed his poetry. It made him write great works like “In the Valley of Cauteretz” and “In Memory of A.H.H.”

Tennyson finally published more poetry in the two-volume Poems, which he did (1842). To strive, to search, to find, and not to give up are the words at the end of Ulysses. The Lady of Shalott, Locksley Hall, Morte d’Arthur, and Ulysses were also on the list. This work was well-received. Unfortunately, Tennyson lost most of his money in 1842 when he tried to start a wood-carving business that didn’t work out. He would get some of the money back in 1845, thanks to an insurance policy that a friend had taken out for him at the time. The poem “In Memoriam” talks about how Tennyson felt about losing Hallam, but it also talks about how many of his contemporaries were uncertain at the time.

During the reign of Queen Victoria, she was a huge fan of Tennyson’s work. She made him the Baron Tennyson of Aldworth in Sussex and Freshwater on the Isle of Wight in 1884. In the year 1865 and 1868, he was also offered a baronetcy, but he turned it down both times. Finally, in the year 1883, Gladstone begged him to accept the offer. On March 11, 1884, he sat down in the House of Lords. During the last years of his life, Tennyson wrote about his religious beliefs and how he broke with tradition. He also talked about how he was drawn to agnosticism and pandeism. Queen Mary was the first of Tennyson’s poetic dramas that he wrote in the year 1874. (1875). Some of his plays would work well on stage, but they didn’t have the same impact as his poems.

Death and Legacy

Tennyson had gout, and it came back in the late summer of 1892 and got worse. He died later that year, at the age of 83. He died at home in Aldworth, Surrey, on October 6. He was buried in Westminster Abbey’s Poets’ Corner. This is where he was buried. It used to be that he was the best poet of the Victorian age, but when that era came to an end, his fame started to fade. As time goes on, Tennyson will probably not be as well-known as he was when he lived. Today, though, he is once again seen as a talented poet who wrote about timeless human issues and gave his readers both solace and inspiration.
