Transcript of Alfred Lord Tennyson

Alfred Lord
Tennyson Poetry Lord Tennyson modeled his earliest work after the works of Lord Byron(1788-1824)
The influence of John Keats (1795-1821), another Romantic Poet, is also evident in much of his poetry
Much of his forms and experimentations were like many of the other poets during the Victorian Age and thus Greek and Latin poetry played a role in influencing his work Tennyson had published his own work at Trinity College along with the poetry of his elder brother under aliases in a book entitled Poems by Two Brothers
In 1830 he published his first work under his real name, "Poems, Chiefly Lyrical."
He published again in 1833. Late, late, so late! and dark the night and chill!
Late, late, so late! but we can enter still.
Too late, too late! ye cannot enter now.
No light had we: for that we do repent;
And learning this, the bridegroom will relent.
Too late, too late! ye cannot enter now.
No light: so late! and dark and chill the night!
O, let us in, that we may find the light!
Too late, too late: ye cannot enter now.

Have we not heard the bridgegroom is so sweet?
O, let us in, tho' late, to kiss his feet!
No, no, too late! ye cannot enter now."
The same year that his second book was published, Tennyson's best friend Arthur Hallam, suddenly passed away. It was then that he began "In Memoriam" in honor of his friend. Late, Late, So Late Lord Byron In 1842 Tennyson began to publish once again.
