Poetry Selected and with an Introduction by Alan Hollinghurst.

Alan Hollinghurst called A. E. Housman's A Shropshire Lad "the most vital English poetry collection of the 1890s and perhaps of the whole period from the death of Tennyson until Hardy's Satire of Circumstances." Drawing heavily on this volume, Hollinghurst gathers here a resonant collection of verse from Housman's entire oeuvre that, with its emphasis on the inevitable decay of youth and beauty and on the touching bonds of male friendship, was anthemic for the generation that went to war in 1914.
