Tennyson and In Memoriam On this day in 1833 Arthur Henry Hallam (left) died at the age of twenty-two; in 1850, he would be eulogized in a poem which became a cornerstone for Tennyson and Victorian literature, In Memoriam A.H.H.:
. . . I hold it true, whate'er befall; I feel it, when I sorrow most; 'Tis better to have loved and lost Than never to have loved at all.
