A.E. Housman was one of the best-loved poets of his day, and A Shropshire Lad and Last Poems is a collection of poems whose elegant simplicity of form belies their hidden complexities. Housman's melodic and memorable poems have been popular for over a century. He writes typically of lost love, of the brevity of happiness, of young soldiers doomed to die. Admirers have found his work elegant and resonant; detractors have thought much of it mannered and glib. But Housman speaks with two voices: the smooth texts conceal a dark sub-text. This tormented and secretive man wrote poems alive with indirect self-disclosure. Check out our other books at www.dogstailbooks.co.uk.
