Poems by Two Brothers - The Lives, Work and Influences of George Clayton Tennyson and Charles Tennyson d'Eyncourt

£7.99

Product description

The title of Alfred Tennyson's first published collection of poetry has been adopted for this study of the poetry written by Alfred Tennyson's father, George Clayton Tennyson (1778-1831), and uncle, Charles Tennyson d'Eyncourt (1784-1861). The book takes the Tennyson love of poetry back to the previous generation, providing a context for Alfred's development. Alfred's relationship with his father ('The Old Man of the Wolds' as his grandchildren called him) was difficult and the 'black blood' of the Tennysons of which Alfred would later speak is most evident in the unhappy writings of his father. The link between Alfred's poetic development and the work of his father is thoroughly examined, as is Alfred's complex relationship with his uncle. The book includes an edition of the poetry as well as a critical assessment. Christopher Sturman was the great Lincolnshire local historian who dies tragically young in 1997. He was an expert on Tennyson. See also the book of his collected essays, Landscape and Friendship, also listed by this seller.

Excellent pages, a little edge and D/J wear.
