Emily Tennyson : the poet's wife by Ann Thwaite( Book )

11 editions published between 1996 and 2009 in English and held by 270 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Ann Thwaite's major biography radically alters the story of the poet's relationship with his wife." "It was as a small girl in Lincolnshire that Emily Sellwood first saw the boy Alfred Tennyson. Nearly thirty years later, in the year he became Poet Laureate, they married. What kept them apart and what eventually brought them together has never before been fully explored." "Readers who know little about Tennyson, as well as admirers of his poetry, will enjoy this biography of a Victorian wife who was determined to be fully involved in the work of the man she loved. Drawing on a great deal of unpublished material, Ann Thwaite presents a much more unconventional, energetic and passionate woman than the pale invalid lying on a sofa somewhere in the background of Tennyson's life."--Jacket

Glimpses of the wonderful : the life of Philip Henry Gosse, 1810-1888 by Ann Thwaite( Book )

6 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 180 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Today, Philip Henry Gosse is remembered, if at all, as the patriarch and tyrannical religious maniac in his son Edmund's memoir, Father and Son. This is a vivid reassessment of the life of Philip Henry Gosse, the renowned Victorian naturalist, author, illustrator and Christian fundamentalist, who as both friend and antagonist of Charles Darwin, was at the very heart of the Victorian conflict between science and religion. Thwaite shows that Gosse believed that "the gratification of scientific curiosity is worse than useless if we ignore God."--Publisher
