Tennyson's Name: Identity and Responsibility in the Poetry of Alfred Lord Tennyson
Ashgate Publishing, Ltd., 2008 M01 1 - 166 pages
Seeking to understand Tennyson's poetry as the work of a man concerned with making and then living up one of the most famous names in literature, Anna Barton offers close readings of major works from his early lyrics to his Arthurian Idylls. The laureate's keen sense of professional identity, Barton argues, forced him to grapple with modern concerns about the ethics of print in a market-driven age as he established his own responsible poetic.
