Sea-Fairies and Other Poems by Alfred Tennyson (illustrated)
Five quarter-centuries after his death, the poems of Alfred, Lord Tennyson (English, 6 August 1809 – 6 October 1892) continue to delight readers around the world. Sea-Fairies and Other Poems was published in 1890 and contains six of his beautiful, albeit lesser known, poems. Characteristic of the lilting quality of Tennyson's poetic language are these closing lines from 'The Sea-Fairies': O, listen, listen, your eyes shall glisten/ When the sharp clear twang of the golden chords/ Runs up the ridged sea./ Who can light on as happy a shore/ All the world o’er, all the world o’er?/ Whither away? listen and stay; mariner, mariner, fly no more.
