Expert Answer:

Alfred Lord Tennyson is one of the most famous writers of the Victorian era. He was born in Lincolnshire, England, to George Clayton Tennyson the rector of Somersby. He had a troubled childhood because his father had a strong streak of mental instability. All of Tennyson’s siblings had at least one severe mental breakdown. He began writing poetry to partly escape from the unhappy environment at home, and this was long before he was sent to school.

Tennyson’s writings celebrate the quickly changing industrial and mercantile world during the Victorian period. He sympathised a great deal with rural England. Poems by Two Brothers (1827) was his first published volume of poetry. Although most of it was written by him, the collection also contained poems by his two elder brothers Frederick and Charles.

Some of Tennyson’s famous works are "The Lady of Shalott," "The Palace of Art," "A Dream of Fair Women," "The Hesperides," "Ulysses" (1833), In Memoriam A.H.H. (1849), etc. Alfred Lord Tennyson died on 6 October 1892.
