By: (1809-1892)

The Princess by Alfred, Lord Tennyson is a captivating tale of love, politics, and gender roles.

The Princess herself is a complex and compelling character, challenging traditional gender norms and fighting for her independence. The men who enter the university add humor and tension to the plot, creating a dynamic and engaging narrative.

Overall, The Princess is a timeless and thought-provoking work that explores important social issues in a beautifully written and entertaining way.
