A. E. Housman: A Reassessment
Hardcover. 247 pages. Dimensions: 8.8in. x 5.8in. x 0.9in.This collection of essays was conceived as part of the centenary celebrations of the first publication in 1896 of one of the most popular collections of poetry ever written--A Shropshire Lad--a collection never out of print in a hundred years. Yet Housman was a recluse, an austere classicist of great renown who devoted his academic life to the correction of ancient texts. He filled his poems with the lives, loves, and deaths of simple country people whose emotions are intense and often violent, but lived his own life in stoic acceptance of his loveless, arid existence. Why his life should have been so intentionally empty of emotion raises questions about Housmans own sexuality and the relationship he had with his friend Moses Jackson and Jacksons brother Afalbert. Housmans poetry, like his life, is deceptively simple: this volume shows some of the complex currents below the surface. This item ships from multiple locations.
