The happiness of a man in this life does not consist in the absence but in the mastery of his passions.
–Alfred Lord Tennyson
Alfred Lord Tennyson
Alfred Lord Tennyson was the most well known poet of the Victorian Age: an era characterized by its “fantasy / of constraint” (Neptune / Saturn). Neptune and Saturn were also Tennyson’s key Transcendentals and are in their setting positions over western Europe and the North Atlantic (a few degrees west of England).
Tennyson joined a Spanish army faction in 1831 in the insurrection against King Ferdinand VII of Spain, and in this capacity he traveled to the Pyrenees (42N40; 1E00), a site directly under Primary Neptune. After his army companion, Arthur Henry Hallam, suddenly died in 1832, Tennyson imposed a “severe,” ten-year “period of silence” (Secondary Saturn) upon his literary publications.
Ten years later, he achieved recognition as a great poet with the publication of Poems (1842). The principal theme of the work was the “sustaining power of belief” (Neptune) in an age of increasingly “overt materialism” (Saturn). Tennyson gave “imaginative, creative / form” (Neptune / Saturn) to numerous poetic “inspirations”; his ability to capture a “spiritual vision / in the meticulous structure” (Neptune / Saturn) of the verse form exemplifies a keynote quality of the Neptune / Saturn pairing.
