Tennyson: To Strive, To Seek, To Find

About this Event:

Professor John Batchelor portrays the poet Tennyson as both a Romantic and a Victorian in this new biography. Batchelor looks at Tennyson’s poetry and at his attempts to write plays, and he looks at them in the context of the pressures of the age and the personal relationships that made the man. He shows why Tennyson was Queen Victoria’s favourite poet and why he commanded a wider readership than any other poet of his time.

Batchelor is professor of English literature at the University of Newcastle and has written biographies of Ruskin and Conrad, and critical studies of Virginia Woolf and H G Wells.
