Who wrote "Tis better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all"?
Alfred, Lord Tennyson
The famous line "Tis better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all" is from an Alfred, Lord Tennyson poem called “In Memoriam A.H.H.” which he completed in 1849. Although the poem is is often associated with heartbreak after a break up, it was actually written about Tennyson’s best friend Arthur Henry Hallam (the “A.H.H.” in the title), who died suddenly at aged 22. Deeply grieved, Tennyson spent the next 17 years years composing his epic poem for his friend. It is widely considered one of the greatest poems of the 19th century.
