9780140424744: A Shropshire Lad and Other Poems: The Collected Poems of A. E. Housman (Penguin Classics)

A wonderful collection from one of England's best-loved poets

One of the most admired poets of his day, A.E. Housman wrote poems that conjure a potent and idyllic rural world imbued with a poignant sense of loss. Expressed in simple rhythms, they show a fine ear for the subtleties of meter and alliteration, and they touch on subjects ranging from religious doubt and doomed love to patriotic celebration of the soldier and intense nostalgia for the countryside. This volume brings together the works Housman published in his lifetime, A Shropshire Lad (1896) and Last Poems (1922), along with many posthumous selections and three translations of extracts from Aeschylus, Sophocles, and Euripedes that display his mastery of classical literature.

This edition has been revised by Archie Burnett and includes updated notes on the text and indexes of first lines and titles. It is introduced by Nick Laird and includes an afterword by John Sparrow.

About the Author:

A.E. Housman (1859-1936) was an English poet and classical scholar best known for his cycle of poems A Shropshire Lad.

Nick Laird is the author of two collections of poetry, the acclaimed novel Utterly Monkey, and, most recently, the novel Glover's Mistake. He lives in London.

Review:

"Housman’s singular vision seized hold of the English imagination, inspiring not just a literary following but a generation of composers, like George Butterworth and Ralph Vaughan Williams, who sought to do musically what Housman had done with verse: to create a new and authentically English kind of song."
New Yorker
