A.E. Housman, romantic poet and classical scholar, is best-known as the author of "A Shropshire Lad" and the meticulous editor of Manilius, the Latin poet of astronomy. In this first full biography, Richard Perceval Graves convincingly reconciles the two apparently conflicting sides of Housman's personality, and reassesses the reputation of a man who was something of a mystery even to his closest friends. 'This is bound to become the standard life' - John Carey, "Sunday Times". 'Dispassionate and well-researched' - Philip Larkin, "Guardian".
