Written by Alfred, Lord Tennyson in 1842, this poem was selected by a BBC audience before the London 2012 Olympics, to feature in the Park, more specifically in what was the Athlete’s village, now opposite the entrance to Chobham Academy in East Village.

The poem tells the story of a Greek hero, Ulysses, who wanders the earth, wanting to live life to the full, no matter what hurdles stand in the way.
