In this study, the problem is to point out, interpret, and show the relationship between the symbols used by Tennyson, and the age and times in which Tennyson lived.
The purpose of this study is to examine, analyze, and evaluate selected works of Tennyson in an attempt to give credence to the belief that Tennyson communicated with the reader at a symbolic level that is not immediately discernible to the casual reader.
The scope of this literary study will be confined to the symbolic references, meanings, and interpretation of the following poems: "In Memoriam", "The Lady of Shalott", "Ulysses", "Maud" and "Crossing the Bar".
The writer approaches this study from the hypotheses that there are symbols, symbolic meanings and symbolic techniques in the poetry of Alfred L. Tennyson, and that the symbols became his media of communication.
