Summary
Evocative of <U+2018>the blue remembered hills<U+2019> of his youth, Alfred Edward Housman<U+2019>s A Shropshire Lad is a collection of sixty-three poems of extraordinary beauty and feeling. Set in a semi-imaginary pastoral Shropshire, Housman<U+2019>s verse considers the helplessness of man, the fragility of life and the terrible effects of war, against the background of an achingly beautiful countryside
