We all have experiences in our lives that change us completely. Whether it be the death of a loved one, or maybe a serious injury that changed our lives and the way we act.

In the 1800s, men and women were very different than they are in today’s society. According to Mary Wollstonecraft’s text, A Vindication of the Rights of Woman, woman were treated wrongly, they weren’t allowed to choose their husbands, they weren’t allowed to get an education, and they were basically just something that men owned. In Tennyson’s The Lady of Shalott, the girl is cursed (kind of like how woman of that time period were cursed with no freedoms) and she is not allowed to look outside the window of her castle room. One day, Sir Lancelot comes by and she looked out at him. She then ran out of the castle to try and find him, but she ended up dying due to the curse.
Ulysses, by Alfred Tennyson is a poem that represents the ending to England. In this text, Tennyson speaks through the voice of Ulysses stating, “I cannot rest from travel; I will drink life to the lees” (Pg. 971 Lines 6-7). In these lines he gives the people of England hope that England is not going to end. According to Sheridan, “The theme in Ulysses is the theme of undying adventure. This theme is shown by the story of Ulysses, a man with enormous accomplishments, prestige, and power still who wants to do more with his life and go on more adventures.” This proves that Tennyson was affected by England, and he wanted to give his nation hope and prove to them that their power run was not over!
In conclusion, it is obvious that Tennyson’s works were affected by things that happened to him, or was happening around his life. First of all, in Tennyson’s text, In Memoriam, A.H.H., he is affected by his friend’s death. Also, in Tennyson’s text, The...
