"This Second Edition of Tennyson's In Memoriam represents a significant revision of its predecessor, taking into account major changes in the study of Tennyson's works in recent years. The editor has written a substantial Introduction that provides students with a historical and contextual overview, from In Memoriam's genesis to its publication and reception. The text of the poem is again that of the Eversley Edition of Tennyson's Works, published in 1901-8; it is accompanied by explanatory annotations." ""Criticism" collects thirteen essays - seven new to the Second Edition - that analyze the history and structure of the poem as well as present different readings of this seminal work."--BOOK JACKET.
