I have linked to this page for two semesters and had my English Lit II Survey
students use it in their reading of (and writing on) Tennyson.

While the audio files are nice, the recording of Tennyson reading is also
available on the cd which comes with my students' textbook.

The poems are also all available at other sites (specifically the Victorian
Web--another Merlot site), as are the photos of Tennyson and his wife.

The remarks under Style are interesting, but some more remarks focussing
specifically on Tennyson's poetry and style would be more apropos.

Students have found the hyperlinks in "Lucretius" useful and have wondered why
there aren't similar links in other poems.

Technical Remarks:

Students find it easy to access all materials on the page (though again, most
are available elsewhere), but the link to one poem ("The Progress of Spring")
is, alas, dead, as is that to the text version of "The Passing of Arthur".

The page was created in 1995; has the author updated it since?

A good site for general overview of Tennyson and his works. Fun to have the
different media selections as well.

Technical Remarks:

A bit dark, which makes it hard to read at times. But all the links worked, so
