    The Arthurian legend of Camelot has been told many times, but never better than by Alfred Tennyson. Employing some of the most stirring and beautiful blank verse ever written, Tennyson crafted his version of the Knights of the Round Table over the course of nearly fifty years, completing it in 1885. Despite the length of time, Tennyson managed to maintain a high level of style and continuity throughout.

    Death is a subject that few of us talk about, but many think about and more than a few of us dread. Whether it is the actual end of our life’s journey or merely a transit point to heavenly glory, its actual point of impact is, obviously, life-changing. But what do poets think of it? How do their minds tangle with the subject and make sense of this? That’s what we wondered too. Poets as rich and diverse as Tennyson, Hardy, Shelley, and Poe here share their words, thoughts and visions with us.

    A beautiful young woman hides away, wanting nothing to do with men; and founds a women's university, where no man can enter. But as the master Tennyson writes, "Life is brief but love is long"; love will find a way, and the prince to whom the young woman was betrothed in infancy disguises himself into a woman and enters the premises... This classic narrative poem continues to enchant generation after generation of listeners and it is no wonder why: "Better not be at all than not be noble."
