Tennyson excelled at penning short lyrics, including In the valley of Cauteretz, Break, break, break, The Charge of the Light Brigade, Tears, idle tears and Crossing the Bar. Much of his verse was based on classical mythological themes, although In Memoriam A.H.H.

was written to commemorate his best friend Arthur Hallam, a fellow poet and classmate at Trinity College, Cambridge, who was engaged to Tennysons sister, but died from a cerebral hemorrhage before they were married. Tennyson also wrote some notable blank verse including Idylls of the King, Ulysses, and Tithonus.

During his career, Tennyson attempted drama, but his plays enjoyed little success in his lifetime.
