I. Прочитайте и письменно переведите следующий текст.
Alfred Lord Tennyson (1809 - 1892) is regarded as one of the great English poets and a powerful voice from the Victorian Age. Born the son of the parson, he attended Trinity College, Cambridge, winning a medal for his poetry. However, his first published work, at the age of twenty one, attracted little attention from the public and it was not until twelve years later that a third volume, "Poems", was to bring him the recognition he deserved. Many of those poems from his youth are today among his most famous. On the death of William Wordsworth in 1850, Tennyson had established himself sufficiently to take his place as Poet Laureate and it was during this period that some of his finest works were produced. The themes of his poetry range from medieval Romance to the forces of nature and through them constant attacks are made on the brutal hypocrisy of the Victorian era. There are those who would argue that this last area was more skilfully dealt with by the Victorian novelists rather than the poets, yet the strength of Tennyson's writings has ensured his place among the great literary figures of history.
