Tears, Idle Tears
“Tears, Idle Tears” was published in 1847 by English poet Alfred, Lord Tennyson, in a volume of poetry titled The Princess: A Medley. This verse (found in Part 4 of the longer work), was sung by ” a maid” to “her harp.” The book was intended to be a long examination of a contemporary controversy, the education of women and the establishment of female colleges. This melancholy verse examines life from a perspective of life’s end, with memories affecting the speaker in some indefinable way.
