Tennyson is best known for In Memoriam A.H.H., an elegy to a friend, Arthur Hallam, who died young. Written between 1833 and 1850, its tone of regret and lost reached a very wide audience in the second half of the century. When Queen Victoria became widow on the death of her husband, Albert, in 1861 In Memoriam became her favourite text, and Tennyson became the nation's favourite poet.

Tennyson became the national poet and when something historic, like the Crimean War happened, it was Tennyson who wrote about it: The Charge of the Light Brigade (published in 1855).

The Charge of the Light Brigade at Balaklava by William Simpson (1855).
