வாழ்க்கை வரலாற்று வரலாறு?

Alfred, Lord Tennyson was a poet. He was born in 1809 in Somersby, Lincolnshire. He died in Aldworth, Sussex. His work first appeared in Poems by Two Brothers, published in 1827. He married Emily Sarah Sellwood (1813–1896) in 1850 and they had two sons, Hallam, born in 1852, and Lionel, born in 1854.

Tennyson was educated at Trinity College, Cambridge, where in 1829 he won the Chancellor’s Gold Medal for a poem he wrote on the subject of “Timbuctoo.” In 1850, he was appointed poet laureate, following the publication of In Memoriam A.H.H., an elegy dedicated to his close friend, Arthut Henry Hallam, who died in 1833. Maud, a poem highly acclaimed for its elaborate use of meters and stanza forms, appeared in 1855.

Tennyson’s last book of poetry, Death of Oenone, Akbar’s Dream, and Other Poems was published in 1892. Hallam, Lord Tennyson (1852–1928) wrote a biography of his father, Alfred, Lord Tennyson: A Memoir, which appeared in 1897.

Charles Canniff James (1863–1916), an alumnus of Victoria College, book collector, academic, and distinguished civil servant donated the collection to the library in 1898. The titles in the collection were acquired as part of a larger C.C. James collection, which originally consisted of the Canadiana and the Tennyson collections. The C.C. James Memorial Room, housing the collections, was dedicated in his memory in 1926. It was located on the third floor of the Birge–Carnegie Library.

James also published two essays on the poet and his work, A Tennyson Pilgrimage and Tennyson, the Imperialist in 1910, describing James’s travels in 1910 to the birthplace of Tennyson and other places in Great Britain associated with the poet, and discussing the poet’s role in the British national and imperial identity in the nineteenth century.

Librarian David Sinclair (1942-1974) catalogued and reorganized the collection in 1970. He also published an essay analyzing the scope of the collection in Victoriana Studies Association Newsletter.

நோக்கமும் உள்ளடக்கமும்

The collection is rich in the first English and American editions of Tennyson’s works, including Poems by Two Brothers (1827), In Memoriam A.H.H. (1850), Maud: And Other Poems (1855), Idylls of the King (1859), and Demeter: And Other Poems (1889), among others. It is also a very good general collection of Tennysoniana, containing concordances, pamphlets, periodicals, indexes, biographical essays, and studies of individual poems.
