A.E. Housman: A collection of critical essays

In A. H. Housman. twelve noted literary critics and poets - Including Cleanth Brooks, J. P. Sullivan, and Randall Jarell - measure and interpret the value of Housman's poetry. As preface to the volume, W. H Auden, Ezra Pound, and Kingsley Amis pay tribute in verse to the author of  A Shropshire Lad. Other contributors reveal Housman's child-like romanticism, analyze his lyric quality and intellectual dualism, and consider the influence upon him of classical literature. Housman, the editor points out, is a poet of "subtle and ennobling dignity" who receives praise of the highest order: he is a "poet about whom poets write poems."
