Description

Leather Binding, Signed Binding

In a half calf binding by E. Strong.

This charming work contains the long poems Enid, Vivien, Elaine and Guinevere.

published between 1859 and 1885, ‘Idylls of the King’ is a cycle of narrative poems that retell the legend of King Arthur, his knights, his love for Guinevere and her tragic betrayal of him, and the rise and fall of Arthur's kingdom.

Written by English poet Lord Alfred Tennyson (1809 – 1892).

A number of phrases from Tennyson's work have become commonplace in the English language, including "Nature, red in tooth and claw" and "'Tis better to have loved and lost / Than never to have loved at all". He is the ninth most frequently quoted writer in The Oxford Dictionary of Quotations.
