The wolds surrounding his home, the fen some miles away, with its level waste and trenched waters, and the sea on the Lincolnshire coast, with league-long rollers and table-shore, are pictured again and again in his poems.When he was seven years old he was sent to the Louth Grammar School, and returning home after a few years there, was educated with his elder brother Charles by his father. Charles and Alfred Tennyson, while yet youths, published in 1827 a small volume of poetry entitled Poems by Two Brothers.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
