Learical Tennysons website launched

Tennyson and family

Jasmine Jagger (Postdoctoral Research Assistant) and Dr Matthew Bevis (Associate Professor) have curated and designed an online exhibition on the relationship between Edward Lear and the Tennyson family as part of the Knowing Edward Lear AHRC Project.

The exhibition results from an examination of the entire collection of letters (around 200) and objects (including several rare volumes and artworks) passed between Lear and the Tennysons over their lifetimes.

The material, much of it previously unpublished, is presented in partnership with the AHRC and Tennyson Research Centre at Lincoln, and is available at www.learicaltennysons.co.uk.
