Product Description

From Booklist

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

5.0 out of 5 stars Some of the worlds great poems read with real insight and emotion Jan. 17 2014
By pudburton - Published on
Michael Pennington is a passionate Shakespearian with a long list of stage/screen credits to his name and it shows with this wonderful collection of poems. In my view every word is read with just the right amount of emotion and elegantly bring the poems to life. The tone of Michael Penningtons voice, to my mind, carries an undercurrent of melancholy reflecting Tennysons preoccupation with the beauty of nature, the sufferings and strivings of man and beast and the transient and uncertain nature of all our existencies.

This CD is a must.

The colorful illustrations make our poetry more inviting and enjoyable. There are one page selections of very long poems and one or two sentences to explain the gist of the poem.
5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Poetry Introduction Aug. 18 2011
By EmilyA - Published on
I have found no better way to introduce young people to these great poets than through this Poetry for Young People series. I highly recommend it! The poems are well chosen, and by reading through these books the children will easily be able to see a variety of writing styles. The full color pages help bring the poems to life, and keep even the youngest readers/listeners interested. Each book also includes a biography of the poet. These are just all around fun learning!

This CD has helped me understand Tennyson's work and to develop lesson plans around it. Tennyson isn't easy for me to read so it was good to have something to read it with.
5.0 out of 5 stars A great series for children or intro to poetry March 24 2010

My mom gave me two of the books in this series (Emily Dickinson and Robert Frost) when I was little, and I love them. The illustrations are beautiful and there are explanatory notes for some words that may not be as familiar to children or modern readers. I recommend any of the books in the series.
