A.E.Housman: An Introduction

As its title suggests, this is a lecture which introduces its audience to the life and work of the poet and classical scholar A.E.Housman (1859-1931). Housman, whose book of poems entitled A Shropshire Lad has never been out of print since its first publication in 1896, was a fine poet whose emotional life was deeply troubled, and whose story is well worth hearing.
