Tennyson was the most successful English poet of the Victorian age, adored by a vast readership that included the Queen herself. Yet his success was neither the triumph of pure genius nor an accident of history - as this meticulous biography demonstrates, he skilfully crafted his own career. Charting his progress from Romantic radical to Poet Laureate, it shows how he transformed personal tragedy into poetry, and how he ultimately became a prisoner of the fame he so ardently desired.
