Tennyson, Paperback (December 2014)
Alfred Lord Tennyson, Queen Victoria's favourite poet, commanded a wider readership than any other of his time. This biography shows him as a Romantic as well as a Victorian, exploring both the poems and Tennyson's attempts at play writing, as well as the pressures of his age and the personal relationships that made the man.
John Ruskin, Paperback (December 2013)
Ruskin, whose life spanned almost a century from 1819 to 1900, was one of the most influential cultural and intellectual figures of his age. He was fundamentally a post-Romantic visionary; this fact underlies his activities as art critic and writer on architecture and also his passionate advocacy of an alternative social model for England.
