Book Description:
This amazing collection of some of Tennyson's best and most capricious poems takes us on a whimsical voyage, an allegorical voyage like no other - and we will be in good hands for at the tiller is Lord Tennyson himself. We will be guided by this master poet through a fantastic imaginary world of things that may exist, things that are, and those that may lie ahead. Our explorations will be wide-ranging as we consider with the poet, other life forms and existences and go on to explore diverse reactions to the events and pathos of lives extended to their fullest and the passion involved when the weight of lives lived as victims are realized to be wanting, melancholy and dismal.

And as we, all of us, continue our individual voyages through this phenomenon we collectively call life and as we face the tribulations intrinsic to daily existence, we can't help but pose questions similar to those Tennyson addresses in this selection of superlative and prescient poems. And as we age and more cogently realize, "The night comes on that knows not morn," the poet attempts to provide solace in his assertion that, "Nothing was born; / Nothing will die; / All things will change."

Change, it could be said, is the common thread that unites this superb collection of works created by a master poet - change, with an underlying current of the continuity that unites us all as we each proceed toward the time when we shall, "cease to be all alone."
