This is a biography for everybody interested in poetry -- Antonia Fraser * Mail on Sunday *
Batchelor's book is a useful reminder of what makes Tennyson a brilliant poet: it points the reader back in the direction of the poems -- Emma Hogan * New Statesman *
John Batchelor has written a biography which is commendably careful, highly readable and wholly sensible. It should stand, in years to come, as the most advisable entry point into this most inscrutable of poets * Spectator *
By far the most serious and just biography of Tennyson in a long time * Wall Street Journal *
It's a pleasure when a biographer is as good a reader of poems as of life * New York Times Book Review *
