Gr. 5-8. From the Poetry for Young People series, this effective, large-format book provides a highly illustrated introduction to the poems of Tennyson. Maynard's introduction gives a vivid picture of the poet: his childhood and youth, the pivotal relationships and events in his life, his particular skills as a poet, the background of his most famous works, and his unusually strong acclaim during his lifetime. The selections that follow are generally taken from longer works but stand on their own, particularly with a few lines from the editor setting the stage and a key on each page to words that might be unknown or unclear. The paintings that illustrate each poem are richly colored, imaginative, and impressionistic interpretations of the verse. Carolyn Phelan

“I am a part of all I have met” (Ulysses, 1833). His Ulysses is not a jealous man, but a traveler who peacefully comes to his home. His search for knowledge made him make different experiences. Even when you are wrong according to health rationality memories of the experience remain. Also making mistakes one can behave naturally and be humanly sensitive sometimes.
“Men may come and men may go. But I go on forever” (The brook, 1862). Genetics makes men make sons. If you don’t have them, you can look at your relatives (inclusive fitness). You can try to produce works of art or literature in the search for eternity. At the end you can stay before a flowing river, appreciating the (possible) eternity of some natural things. This is the meaning of this personification of an atheist poet.
“The white rose weeps” (of joy; Come into the garden, Maud, 1857). Since the roman de la rose this flower is symbol of straight carnality and spirituality in European literature.
