About the Author
Elaine Wilson, born and educated in Switzerland, first compiled an anthology about Harrow on the Hill, As I Trace Thy Winding Hill ('What an enchanting book.' Sir Arthur Bryant), and then followed with Thomas Hardy: An Autobiography in Verse, and Images of Christmas Frederick Marns was the calligrapher for the Royal Shakespeare Theatre edition of The Sonnets ('A beautiful and covetable book.' The Times) and the illustrator of an editin of The Natural History of Selbourne with ten drawings ('...which Durer would not be ashamed to acknowledge.' Sunday Times) In Thomas Hardy: An Autobiography in Verse, his calligraphy and pencil drawings were brought together for the first time. When Edward Thomas was killed in the battle of Arras in 1917, he was mourned as an essayist, as a biographer and as one of the foremost critics of his time. His talent for poetry, however, was known only to close friends and of the hundred and forty-four poems he had written during the last two and a half years of his life, he was to see only a dozen in print.

This is a beautiful edition.Just how book should be. A lot of attention has gone into the production with the calligraphy, explanations, and the exquisite drawings. I discovered that the calligraphy allows the poems to be read at the right pace; the words linger in the mind because they are so lovely to read.
