Few volumes of poetry in the English language have enjoyed as much success with both literary connoisseurs and the general reader as A. E. Housman's A Shropshire Lad, first published in 1896. Scholars and critics have seen in these timeless poems an elegance of taste and perfection of form and feeling comparable to the greatest of the classic. Yet their simple language, strong musical cadences and direct emotional appeal have won these works a wide audience among general readers as well. This finely produced volume, reprinted from an authoritative edition of A Shropshire Lad, contains all 63 original poems along with a new Index of First Lines and a brief new section of Notes to the Text. Here are poems that deal poignantly with the changing climate of friendship, the fading of youth, the vanity of dreams - poems that are among the most read, shared, and quoted in our language.

The poems are short and easy to read. They express love for the people and countryside of Housman's home in Shropshire, and sadness to be away from that home and for lost youth ... Noted for its rich, fruity fragrance, Rosa 'A Shropshire Lad' is absolutely ravishing with its large rosettes displaying up to 100 perfectly arranged, soft and peachy pink petals.
