A Shropshire Lad and Other Poems (Paperback)

AE Housman


A. E. Housman was one of the best-loved poets of his day, whose poems conjure up a potent and idyllic rural world imbued with a poignant sense of loss. They are expressed in simple rhythms, yet show a fine ear for the subtleties of metre and alliteration. His scope is wide - ranging from religious doubt to intense nostalgia for the countryside. This volume brings together "A Shropshire Lad" (1896) and "Last Poems" (1922), along with the posthumous selections "More Poems" and "Additional Poems", and three translations of extracts from Aeschylus, Sophocles and Euripides that display his mastery of Classical literature.
