KIRKUS REVIEW

The variety evidenced in these selections in both subject and poetic form is characteristic of the body of the poet's works. The sonnet, ballad, song, and ode are among the forms he adopted as he wrote about such diverse subjects as Virgil, a flower, attle action, love or King Arthur's days. Although Tennyson goes in and out of fashion, his battle poems and several others will always have an audience, especially among readers at this age. After covering the poet's broad range, the anthologist concludes with selections from In Memoriam, which is frequently cited as his best work.
