Alfred Tennyson, 1st Baron Tennyson FRS (6 August 1809 – 6 October 1892) was a British poet. He was the Poet Laureate of Great Britain and Ireland during much of Queen Victoria's reign and remains one of the most popular British poets. In 1829, Tennyson was awarded the Chancellor's Gold Medal at Cambridge for one of his first pieces, "Timbuktu". He published his first solo collection of poems, Poems Chiefly Lyrical in 1830.

Oscar Fingal O'Flahertie Wills Wilde (16 October 1854 – 30 November 1900) was an Irish poet and playwright. After writing in different forms throughout the 1880s, he became one of London's most popular playwrights in the early 1890s. He is best remembered for his epigrams and plays, his novel The Picture of Dorian Gray, and the circumstances of his criminal conviction for "gross indecency", imprisonment, and early death at age 46.

Tennyson’s poem laments the days that are no more and describes the past as a Death in Life. It is regarded highly by critics for the quality of its lyric and has been set to music a number of times. The most famous of Tennyson’s early poems, The Lady of Shalott is loosely based on the legend of Elaine of Astolat who dies of her unrequited love for British knight Sir Lancelot.

East and West Tennyson is the best as a bard. Tennyson is the best poet of all time; he ranks up there with Virgil and Isaiah. Maya Meadoi (4/22/2018 4:45:00 AM). Poets are important and should be honoured. They are angels with gold hearts. Great (Report) Reply.

Tennyson wrote this poem in honor of his beloved friend who died very young; and through him, he questioned his faith in God, in nature and in poetry. In this paper I have tried to explain Victorian crisis of faith in general, and how this crisis is reflected in Tennyson, Arnold and Browning‟s poetry.

More than any other Victorian writer, Tennyson has seemed the embodiment of his age, both to his contemporaries and to modern readers Read Full Biography. More About this Poet. School/Period: Victorian.

Victorian poetry marks a bridge between Romanticism and Modernism. For example, Arnold used the character of Greek philosopher Empedocles (490 BCE-430 BCE) in his poem Empedocles on Etna (1852). An interest in this period of history can also be seen in other activities of the Victorian poets, with Arnold writing an essay on translating Homer. Another major topic of Victorian poetry was faith in God and the existence of divinity.
