    I have searched and searched for 'The Children's Hospital' by Tennyson on various sites without success. Has this poem been removed from Tennyson's canon? If so, Why?

  • Nanci Lesley (3/9/2018 11:29:00 AM)

    The Eagle is sublime, written in iambic pentameter, in intense lines that illustrate the power and singular independence, and perhaps loneliness, of such a remarkable beauty and physical powers. Tennyson captures the spirit of this elite bird whose acumen and thought are pure wonder.

    For interest of those who love all things Tennyson!

    We say an “Heliographic” photo, as this is what it appears to be to us, perhaps experts in photography could be precise as to what kind of process was taken to produce this photo-like image in 1856.

    1856 is the same year Thomas Woolner sculpt this plaster cast, which is one of the best-known portrait reliefs of the poet Alfred Tennyson.

    As you can see in this listing we are selling both the “Heliographic” photo, that seems was taken for John Henry Robinson to 'copy' and create the final engraving which is also for sale as a pair.

    What is interesting is that Robinson has placed the photographic image onto stiff card – in the top left and right corners are pin holes and how he would have mounted it to work from; around the outer edge is pencil drawing and so he can complete a fine outer circle around the image, the same seems to be the case with pencil shading directly on the eyes, parts of the head and hair. – The size of this card is 13cm x 9.8cm, the image is 7cm in circumference.

    The ‘proof before letters’ stipple engraving is printed on traditional stiff paper; size 12.5cm x 10.2cm – and the image is 7.5cm in circumference.

    These extremely rare items are historic pieces of ‘art’ and rare as hens teeth. We have listed it at £350 for the pair, and should imagine were they to go to auction would sell for much higher.

    Note: We have also listed this under the 'engravings/prints' section on Etsy, whatever category it sells in first the other listing will immediately be removed.

    NOTE: All other similar engravings either on the National Portrait Gallery, The Royal Academy of Art, Victoria & Albert Museum, British Museum and commercial or private dealers are not as rare as what’s been listed here; theirs are ‘copies’, prints made after these originals. Our collection is 100% genuine and sourced directly from John Henry Robinson’s own portfolio - see further details below.

    Woolner considered it the best portrait roundel he had ever made, even though he had to adapt it to appease the poet’s wife, Emily, who requested that he shorten the nose to ennoble the profile. Tennyson’s poetry was a rich source of inspiration to the Pre-Raphaelites.

    Ah, just unbelievable Bernie Tennyson penned a comment here. No alacrity in assuming that his blood has got the fragrance of those verses his father wrote, even if he's not so good at verses just like his father! It seems as if poetry came to Lord Tennyson just naturally as if he was just to be renowned by the glorious name 'Tennyson'!

    To Bernie Tennyson: I feel honored to talk with you as Alfred Lord Tennyson is one of my favorite poets. I recommend you IN MEMORIAM as it kind a fits with your situation. It is a requiem for the poet's beloved Cambridge friend Arthur Henry Hallam, who died suddenly of a cerebral haemorrhage in Vienna in 1833.

    I recently looked into my Family Tree as sadly my Father passed away January last gone at 56yrs young! ! My mam sadly passed 5yrs before at the age of 52yrs young. I myself is 33 years of age. I have discovered that Alfred Lord Tennyson is one of my Ancestors. My father used to write poems as a hobbie but he was great at it. I now cant stop reading his work and think its fantastic. Could anyone suggest a poem to me that i can dedicate to both my parents please. I miss them so much and would like to get it printed and framed. I have yet to read loads more, any suggestions? ? Thank you for taking the time to read this comment.

Best Poem of Alfred Lord Tennyson

Ulysses

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
That hoard, and sleep, and feed, and know not me.
I cannot rest from travel; I will drink
Life to the lees. All times I have enjoy'd
Greatly, have suffer'd greatly, both with those
That loved me, and alone; on shore, and when
Thro' scudding drifts the rainy Hyades
Vext the dim sea. I am become a name;
For always roaming with a hungry heart
Much have I seen and known,-- cities of men ...

Read the full of Ulysses

After-Thought

I thought of Thee, my partner and my guide,
As being past away. -Vain sympathies!
For backward, Duddon! as I cast my eyes,
I see what was, and is, and will abide;
Still glides the Stream, and shall not cease to glide;
The Form remains, the Function never dies;
While we, the brave, the mighty, and the wise,
We Men, who in our morn of youth defied
The elements, must vanish; -be it so!
