The Well-Educated Mind - 84% Done!

I just finished Tennyson's Idylls of the King, and I loved it. Beautiful and long poem. I learned so much about Arthurian legend while reading it too.


Tennyson is a wonderful poet with my values. How can you not like a guy who died reading Shakespeare? 


I reached a major milestone by completing another genre of The Well-Educated Mind:POETRY! I really feel like poetry is the hardest of all of them. So, it is nice to have this done!
