About this book

Tennyson is the most important English poet of the Victorian age. He knew its key figures and was deeply involved in its science, religion, philosophy and politics. The Palgrave Literary Dictionary for the first time gives easily accessible information, under more than 400 headings, on his poetry, his circle, the period and its contexts.

Reviews

'This dictionary, as wide as an encyclopedia, is sure to be often consulted as a reliable and enjoyable source of information.' - Reference Reviews Journal

'This very useful book gives a near complete account of all Tennyson's works and all the people he knew...Much industry, knowledge and research has gone into the making of the excellent dictionary.' - Lincolnshire History and Archaeology

'...it is certainly the case that, with this dictionary, the editors' encyclopaedic knowledge has placed all Tennysonians in their debt and provided a work of reference to which we shall all have profitable recourse for the forseeable future.' - The Tennyson Society
