Alfred Tennyson

Data de nascimento: 6. Agosto 1809
Data de falecimento: 6. Outubro 1892
Outros nomes: Alfred Lord Tennyson, Lord Alfred Tennyson

Alfred Tennyson, 1º Barão de Tennyson , foi um poeta inglês. Estudou no Trinity College, em Cambridge. Viveu longos anos com sua esposa na ilha de Wight por seu amor à vida sossegada do campo.

Muita da sua poesia baseou-se em temas clássicos mitológicos, embora In Memoriam tenha sido escrito em honra de Arthur Hallam, um poeta amigo e colega de Trinity College, Cambridge, que esteve noivo da sua irmã, mas que morreu devido a uma hemorragia cerebral antes de casar. Uma das obras mais famosas de Tennyson é Idylls of the King , um conjunto de poemas narrativos baseados nas aventuras do Rei Artur e dos seus Cavaleiros da Távola Redonda, inspirados nas lendas antigas de Thomas Malory. A obra foi dedicada ao Princípe Alberto, o consorte da Rainha Vitória. Tennyson fez também algumas incursões pelo teatro, mas as suas peças tiveram pouco sucesso durante a sua vida.

Locksley Hall (1842)

„Old age hath yet his honor and his toil.
Death closes all; but something ere the end,
Some work of noble note, may yet be done,
Not unbecoming men that strove with gods.“

—  Alfred, Lord Tennyson, livro Ulysses

Fonte: Ulysses (1842), l. 46-53
Contexto: Souls that have toil'd, and wrought, and thought with me —
That ever with a frolic welcome took
The thunder and the sunshine, and opposed
Free hearts, free foreheads — you and I are old;
Old age hath yet his honor and his toil.
Death closes all; but something ere the end,
Some work of noble note, may yet be done,
Not unbecoming men that strove with gods.

„And Freedom rear'd in that august sunrise
Her beautiful bold brow,
When rites and forms before his burning eyes
Melted like snow.“

—  Alfred, Lord Tennyson, Lady Clara Vere de Vere

The Poet (1830)
Contexto: p>Thus truth was multiplied on truth, the world
Like one great garden show'd,
And thro' the wreaths of floating dark up-curl'd,
Rare sunrise flow'dAnd Freedom rear'd in that august sunrise
Her beautiful bold brow,
When rites and forms before his burning eyes
Melted like snow.</p

„Heard a carol, mournful, holy,
Chanted loudly, chanted lowly,
Till her blood was frozen slowly,
And her eyes were darkened wholly,
Turn'd to tower'd Camelot.“

—  Alfred, Lord Tennyson, The Lady of Shalott

The Lady of Shalott (1832)
Contexto: p>Lying, robed in snowy white
That loosely flew to left and right —
The leaves upon her falling light —
Thro' the noises of the night,
She floated down to Camelot:
And as the boat-head wound along
The willowy hills and fields among,
They heard her singing her last song,
The Lady of Shalott.Heard a carol, mournful, holy,
Chanted loudly, chanted lowly,
Till her blood was frozen slowly,
And her eyes were darkened wholly,
Turn'd to tower'd Camelot.
For ere she reach'd upon the tide
The first house by the water-side,
Singing in her song she died,
The Lady of Shalott.</p

„I grow in worth, and wit, and sense,
Unboding critic-pen,
Or that eternal want of pence,
Which vexes public men“

—  Alfred, Lord Tennyson

" Will Waterproof's Lyrical Monologue http://whitewolf.newcastle.edu.au/words/authors/T/TennysonAlfred/verse/englishidyls/willwaterproof.html", st. 6 (1842)
Contexto: I grow in worth, and wit, and sense,
Unboding critic-pen,
Or that eternal want of pence,
Which vexes public men,
Who hold their hands to all, and cry
For that which all deny them —
Who sweep the crossings, wet or dry,
And all the world go by them.

„With youthful fancy reinspired,
We may hold converse with all forms
Of the many-sided mind,
And those whom passion hath not blinded,
Subtle-thoughted, myriad-minded.“

—  Alfred, Lord Tennyson

Ode to Memory (1830)
Contexto: Whither in after life retired
From brawling storms,
From weary wind,
With youthful fancy reinspired,
We may hold converse with all forms
Of the many-sided mind,
And those whom passion hath not blinded,
Subtle-thoughted, myriad-minded.

„Half a league half a league
Half a league onward
All in the valley of Death
Rode the six hundred:“

—  Alfred, Lord Tennyson, The Charge of the Light Brigade

St. 1
The Charge of the Light Brigade (1854)
Contexto: Half a league half a league
Half a league onward
All in the valley of Death
Rode the six hundred:
'Forward the Light Brigade
Charge for the guns' he said
Into the valley of Death
Rode the six hundred.
