Maud (poem) is currently a redirect to this page. It may be better served if we take the "Maud" section of this article and move it there instead, while leaving this page as a stub dedicated to the book Maud and other poems. JubalHarshaw 19:56, 12 October 2006 (UTC)
- Split declined. A split at this point would serve no useful purpose. The article needs to be built up, and when the article has grown quite large and the section on Maud at that point is disproportionately large, that would be the time to consider splitting per WP:Summary style. The priority at the moment is to build the article with material appropriately cited to reliable sources. 10:12, 8 November 2010 (UTC)
Tennyson, 'The Charge of the Light Brigade'
'The Charge of the Light Brigade' was not banned. It was not regarded as suggestive, nor as a 'disgrace to society'. It did not have anything to say about the government or opposition. Tennyson did not regard the military event, or the poem, as a 'bit of a joke'. Many of the points made here about 'The Charge' are factually incorrect. Correct that the poem was first published in The Examiner in 1854, but it was well received.
See Christopher Ricks, Tennyson, 2nd edn (Macmillan, 1989) for an accurate account of the poem and its publishing history. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 126.96.36.199 (talk) 22:50, 12 February 2016 (UTC)
