Summary:"Hailed in Britain as a literary event, this important biography of A.E. Housman - based on extensive research and a wealth of never-before-published material - will be the definitive work on this scholar-poet for years to come. Alfred Edward Housman (1859-1936) is best known for his first volume of poems, A Shropshire Lad, in print continually since it was first published in 1896. A classical scholar, he was a man of many interests, including botany, astronomy, English and American literature, and astrology. Yet he was an enigma even to his closest friends."--Jacekt
