Lord Alfred Tennyson "In Memoriam" and "Tears, Idle Tears" Close Reading Lecture

Lord Alfred Tennyson "In Memoriam" and "Tears, Idle Tears" Close Reading Lecture
Product Description
This 30 slide powerpoint covers a brief author bio and close reading poetry analysis for the following poems:
"In Memoriam AHH" by Tennyson
"Tears, Idle Tears" by Tennyson

It also includes annotated poems/teacher notes.

I use this lecture with the Pearson British Lit book, but it could be used with the same poems from other books or online sources.
Parts of this Victorian Poetry Unit can be purchased separately or in a bundle in my store through the following links:
Best Value: Entire Victorian Poetry Unit!

Elizabeth Barrett-Browning’s Sonnet 43 (How Do I love Thee)

Please note, this product has been tested on Powerpoint 2010 for PC and Powerpoint 2011 for Mac. If you have any issues with the sizing, or anything, please contact me and I will create for you a static image ppt that will be universal. I'm in the process of adding this to all of my products, but full time teaching takes up most of my day ;)

Thank you! Please let me know if you have any questions or if I can help in any way ;)
