Lord Alfred Tennyson Alfred Tennyson (1809-1892), English poet often regarded as the chief representative of the Victorian age in poetry. Tennyson succeeded Wordsworth as Poet Laureate in 1850. Alfred, Lord Tennyson was born on August 5, 1809 in Somersby, Lincolnshire. His next book, Poems (1833), received unfavorable reviews, and Tennyson ceased to publish for nearly ten years. After marrying Emily Sellwood, whom he had already met in 1836, the couple settled in Farringford, a house in Freshwater on the Isle of Wight in 1853. Among Tennyson's major poetic achievements is the elegy mourning the death of his friend Arthur Hallam, "In Memoriam" (1850). In the 1870s Tennyson wrote several plays, among them the poetic dramas Queen Mary (1875) and Harold (1876). Tennyson died at Aldwort on October 6, 1892 and was buried in the Poets' Corner in Westminster Abbey. The above biography is copyrighted.

Booktrope.com | Freedom of the Book O'Reilly Open Books Project O'Reilly has published a number of Open Books--books with various forms of "open" copyright--over the years. The reasons for "opening" copyright, as well as the specific license agreements under which they are opened, are as varied as our authors. Perhaps a book was outdated enough to be put out of print, yet some people still needed the information it covered. But there's more to making Open Books available online than simply adopting an open license or giving up rights granted under copyright law. We're happy to have partnered with two innovative nonprofits, Creative Commons and the Internet Archive, to solve the licensing and digitizing challenges involved in bringing Open Books to readers. While the books listed here use various open licenses, since 2003 we've focused on using the licenses created by Creative Commons. Through its Open Library project, the Internet Archive is scanning and hosting PDF versions of our open books. Donate to Creative Commons and the Internet Archive:
