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".Hide synopsis

I like Graves' attention to detail but in a life more filled with angst than drama it becomes tedious and the book could be reduced to half or 2/3 its length. Housman's life was interestig enough and presents a clear revelation of the England in which he lived, much like a museum diorama.
