Resumen

DEMOOR, Marysa. Medieval maidens in the poetry of Lord Alfred Tennyson: portraits of the past as mirrors of the past . Rev. signos [online]. 2003, vol.36, n.54, pp.169-176. ISSN 0718-0934.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-09342003005400003.

In this essay the author wants to examine the early poetry of Lord Alfred Tennyson, and especially celebrated poems such as "The Lady of Shalott" and "The Princess" which, on the one hand, feature beautiful medieval maidens but, on the other hand, problematised gender. The author wants to find out what fed the medievalist strain in Tennyson's poetry, and why he seemed to opt for these attractive medieval maidens as narrative personae. Eventually, the analysis should elucidate Tennyson's views on the function of poetry in a Victorian society.

Palabras clave : medievalism; Victorian poetry; gender; Tennyson; authorial identity.
