This is a collection of essays which shows that academic interest in Housman is still strong. There are contributions from the UK, the USA and Israel focusing on close readings, historical and bibliographical studies, and comparisons with other writers. Housman is seen as man and poet, classicist and inspiration for song-writers. Not since 1968, when Christopher Ricks edited the volume A.E. Housman: A Collection of Critical Essays , has there been such a wide-ranging assessment of the life and work of a great classical scholar and popular poet.
