Description

Strong Son of God, immortal Love, Whom we, that have not seen thy face, By faith, and faith alone, embrace, Believing where we cannot prove; Thine are these orbs of light and shade; Thou madest Life in man and brute; Thou madest Death; and lo, thy foot Is on the skull which thou hast made. Thou wilt not leave us in the dust: Thou madest man, he knows not why, He thinks he was not made to die; And thou hast made him: thou art just. Thou seemest human and divine, The highest, holiest manhood, thou.

In memoriam a. h. obiit MDCCCXXXIII. We have but faith : we cannot know ; For knowledge is of things we see ; And yet we trust it comes from thee, A beam in darkness : let it grow. STRONG Son of God, immortal Love, Whom we, that have not seen thy face, By faith, and faith alone, embrace, Believing where we cannot prove ; Thine are these orbs of light and shade; Thou madest Life in man and brute j Thou madest Death ; and lo, thy foot. Is on the skull which thou hast made ! fc ^. Let knowledge grow from more to more, But more of reverence in us dwell ; That mind and soul, according well, May make one music as before

is a poem by the British poet Alfred, Lord Tennyson, completed in 1849. 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, aged 22. It contains some of Tennyson's most accomplished lyrical work, and is an unusually sustained exercise in lyric verse. It is widely considered to be one of the greatest poems of the 19th century.

Alfred, Lord Tennyson (Poet Laureate of the Victorian era) and Arthur Henry Hallam were great friends as undergraduates at Cambridge University, but Hallam died aged twenty-two. In Memoriam is the long eulogy which made Tennyson famous. Written near the time when Prince Albert, Queen Victoria's husband, died, it was just the poem of love, loss and healing that Britain needed as its people moved from the dying Empire into a new time. Ring out, wild bells, to the wild sky, The flying cloud, the frosty light: The year is dying in the night; Ring out, wild bells, and let him die. 1859 - 211 من الصفحات.

In Memoriam has always been one of my favorite poetic works. This work was bought to replace an old copy, before it became too dog-eared from use. A timeless classic best read aloud to savor the flow of the prose.

This is Tennyson's most famous poem. I bought it for my wife as he is her favorite poet and she loves the book. It's a very inciteful work. If your high school student loves poetry, this is a very good author and work to explore.

My copy was a lot nicer than the picture here. It's small, old looking, and a great choice for a book lover.

Poems are always divided into lines and often into stanzas. Kindle has not been programed to recognize that basic fact. In this case, the spacing is a mess. What's more, the links between the text and the annotations don't appear in any useful form.

The sloppiness of ports to Kindle are annoying in prose works. They ruin the experience of reading a poem.

Please replace this book. There is no cover on my book.

In Memoriam may be Tennyson's greatest achievement and is one of the greatest English poems as well as one of the top modern epics. It was inspired by the death of his close friend Arthur Hallam; perhaps his life's central event, this plunged him into depression and made him question many pre-conceived notions. Written and revised as he moved through various grief stages, In Memoriam is his attempt to deal with the struggle - and, if possible - answer the ensuing questions. It is thus in large part a warm, loving tribute that will touch anyone who has suffered such a loss. Queen Victoria was famously comforted by it after Albert's death, inviting Tennyson to see her and eventually making him Poet Laureate. Many others have doubtless felt similarly, and the poem is highly recommended for anyone mourning. Yet In Memoriam is far more than a simple tribute. Tennyson rises to the very height of his near-unparalleled poetic powers, launching a deep meditation on life, mortality, love, friendship, associated theological issues, and more. He essentially uses the death as a pivot for exploring a wide range issues - everything from theodicy to geology. Profoundly emotional, the work moves us as few can and is often black with grief. However, the conclusion is optimistic, even triumphant, basking in traditional Christian-dominated mid-Victorian thought. Later history sadly made such things seem obsolete, even naïve, but it is almost impossible not to be impressed by the fervency and honesty, and the poem still manages to touch and solace even if it will never again convince. The form is also notable. Tennyson is known for meter mastery and creative rhymes but here sticks to a simple format that became so famous and influential it is known as the "In Memoriam stanza." He manages to make great, multi-pronged use of it, at one point achieving a hypnotic effect, at another rising to sublime lyricism, and at yet another waxing philosophical or theological. His range within such narrow limits is truly impressive. This is simply an essential poem for anyone interested in Tennyson, Victorian literature, or English poetry. It is well worth reading alone, but the fact that many - perhaps most - Tennyson anthologies have it in full makes a standalone hard to justify. The important thing at any rate is to read it in some form.

This book just recently showed up at my house from a second-hand dealer, and I am already in love with it. It was published by the Folio Society in 1975 -- 32 years ago -- yet my copy seems almost new. The binding, typesetting, and editing are all first-rate.

They say that Queen Victoria kept two books for bedtime reading -- the Bible and "In Memoriam." I think she would have been delighted to have this edition.

So much for the physical presentation. The poem itself is a masterpiece, composed on and off over 18 years, as Tennyson tried to reconcile himself to the death of his best friend, Arthur Hallam, a brilliant man who had just become engaged to Tennyson's sister, when a sudden stroke put his light out forever at the age of 31 or 32. Literally full of life one minute, and a lifeless corpse the next.

This unspeakable tragedy caused great philosophical and religious problems for Tennyson, which are all set down here in immortal verse.

Highest possible recommendation!
When JOB--circa 500 BCE--could have asked such basic questions about suffering, then the trope must have been as old as humanity. The trope includes questions about he nature of God who could allow for such suffering; the need to be disciplined of mind to ask such questions in a sustained intellectual effort; the inherent transcendence of such meditation; inherent transcendence of the tragedy itself.

For all the adult Bible classes I've attended--Protestant, Catholic, Jewish--it is surprising how often this question appears across the board. And presumably, because people are still sitting in Bible class, any believe in a Transcendent Deity has not been diminished as a result of these questions, or of these tragedies. One believes because one must believe; one believes because the alternative of absolute nihilism is even worse.

Tennyson is not the only poet to address this question. Hopkins in "The Wreck of the Deutschland", Milton in "Lycidas" to cite just two. To say nothing of allusions from Shakespeare, Beethoven, Picasso (Guernica). But Tennyson's 132 poem lyrical sequence must be one of the most powerful for its sustained effort. One can readily see why Queen Victoria found such comfort from what amounts to a disciplined excurses on mourning.

The Norton edition gives copious footnotes; the accompanying essays help the reader to guide and discipline their own thinking in response to the poem and to mourning as well. So long as tragedy unfolds itself, these questions will be ever fresh.
