'... this book is a joy to read and explore from start to finish and nobody ever caught by the mystery and comedy of Tennyson's genius will wish to be without it. The great success... is to have taken his unpromising material and turned it into a real narrative... They have done so by the range, candour, and wit of their commentary and documentation....' Michael Ratcliffe, The Times

Review:

(FOR VOLUME III)`... fascinating and entertaining. This is due to the masterly and evoted work of the editors ... who have annotated the letters with marvellous fullness and precision and - what seems even more remarkable - with zest and wit. Through their exhaustive work we get, incidentally, a feeling for the exture of Victorian life.' Richard Jenkyns, Times Literary Supplement

'a joy to read and explore from start to finish and nobody ever caught by the mystery and comedy of Tennyson's genius will wish to be without it' The Times

'outstandingly useful to Tennysonians ... annotation is scrupulous and extensive.' Times Literary Supplement

'encapsulates a world of abiding fascination ... No serious lover of Tennyson or of Victorian literature can afford to be without them.' Sunday Telegraph

'The editors are to be applauded for the fullness of this edition...these letters ensure that Tennyson continues to receive close attention.' Independent

`edited with brio...it adds immensely to our sense of the life which Tennyson kept so private and put so completely into writing.'Sunday Telegraph

'a careful reading of these letters reveals the demeanour of the man...It is doubly fortunate, then, that the editing of this correspondence is so unobtrusive...the editors have hit upon the appealing idea of including contemporary descriptions of the man at appropriate moments. And in these accounts the outline from the letters is, as it were, filled in.'Peter Ackroyd, The Times

`the transforming skills of our two American editors. They bring literary intimacy, along with historical scholarship and worldly wit, to full and positively frisky footnotes. ...but they seize upon the least opportunity to bring the Old Mystic of the Lincolnshire Wolds, the man "retired into himself", into vivid, bearish life. ...this edition is a triumph of imaginative scholarship...' Richard Holmes, The Times Saturday Review

`They [Lang and Shannon] are tireless where he [Tennyson] was fed up, and the three of them have concocted one of the indispensable books for anyone who now wants to read Victorian poetry.' Eric Griffiths, Correspondent

'editors of startling fondness ... one of the indispensable books for anyone who now wants to read Victorian poetry' Eric Griffiths, Sunday Correspondent

Synopsis:

This third and final volume of The Letters of Alfred Lord Tennyson, the first collected edition, is notable for the light it throws on Tennyson's efforts as a dramatist and on his interactions with the leading theatre managers, actresses, and actors of the day, especially Henry Irving. The letters reveal his relations with many fellow-authors and literary men, both British and American. An important thread in the volume is his close association with Gladstone; and an extensive correspondence with the Australian, Sir Henry Parkes, reflects his continuing interest in the Empire. The volume ends with his death in 1892. To complete the edition a comprehensive index has been prepared, covering all three volumes. Previous volumes have been warmly praised by critics:
