Book Synopsis
"'Tis better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all."
Tennyson said it first, and we've all been saying it since. In 1833 Tennyson's best friend died suddenly, a spiritual wound that Tennyson barely recovered from. He spent the next 60 years writing gorgeous, searching poetry fueled primarily by loss -- the loss of the ones we love, the loss of time, and of course the loss of our own fleeting lives. And yet, with his deep interest in philosophy, classics, and science, Tennyson alloyed that sorrow (or in some cases channeled it) in fresh, compelling ways. And through it all, he maintains a ravishing poetic ear that is comparable only to Milton and Shakespeare.
