Bailey Cove Classics: Idylls of the King

UAH professor Dr. Jennifer Garlen will discuss the evolution of the Arthurian legend. About the book: with regal melancholy and superb craftsmanship, Tennyson's poems evoke past and present-the Isle of the Lotos-eaters, Camelot, and his own twilit English gardens-seeking to reconcile the Victorian zeal for public progress with private despair. Praised over all other poets for his unerring portraits of the gentleman and the beggar alike, Tennyson still favored neither. Using eloquence, melancholy, and myths, Alfred Lord Tennyson proved to be the stylist most imitated by poets of his day.
