Alfred, Lord Tennyson, was born on this day in 1809 (which would make him 209 today, in case you were wondering).

The longest-serving British poet laureate in history is perhaps best known for his poems “The Lotos-Eaters” and “The Lady of Shalott.”

If it’s been a long time since high school English class, you can refresh your knowledge of Tennyson in a Los Angeles Times article.
