Product Description

About the Author

Alfred Edward Housman (March 26, 1859 - April 30, 1936), usually known as A.E. Housman, was an English poet and classical scholar, now best known for his cycle of poems A Shropshire Lad.

Nick Laird was born in 1975 in County Tyrone, Northern Ireland. He was a scholar at Cambridge University and spent a year at Harvard as a visiting fellow. He also worked for several years as a litigator and arbitration lawyer in London and Warsaw. The author of the poetry collections To A Fault (Faber/Norton) and On Purpose (Faber/Norton), he has received several prestigious awards for both poetry and fiction, including the 2005 Rooney Prize for Irish Literature and the Ireland Chair of Poetry Award. His first novel, Utterly Monkey (Fourth Estate/Harper Collins) won the Betty Trask Prize for best first novel and was shortlisted for Irish Novel of the Year and the Commonwealth Writers Prize. His second novel, Glover's Mistake, was published by 4th Estate in the spring of 2009.

Shropshire Lad 4 July 2011

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I love this collection. Great bonus is the transcription towards the end of the book of a Houseman lecture, his insights to the nature of poetry.

Well-formatted for Kindle 3 14 Sep 2010
By Robert Hoeppner - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
There IS a clickable table of contents; however, it's disabled in Menu - Go To... The Table of Contents lists the introduction, books (A Shropshire Lad, Last Poems, More Poems, Additional Poems, Translations), Appendix, Notes, Index of First Lines, and Index of Titled Poems, not the individual poems. The indices are hyperlinked, so they can take you to the poem by title or first line. In some places phrases are hyperlinked in poems. Clicking the hyperlink takes you to the Notes section for alternate phrases that were used for some version of the poem. So far, my experience with Penguin Books is that they are very well formatted for Kindle 3. If you like Housman, and if you have a Kindle 3, I think you will be very well satisfied with this. And, to top it off, the Kindle version is available before the print version!
Ooops. Paper of book and set up of poetry on page of book is far superior to KINDLE presentation. I must remember this. 23 Aug 2014

I love poetry. I love Houseman.
I DO NOT love trying to read poetry on KINDLE format.
Won't order poetry again.
