    As a piece of publishing I love this edition of these poems or perhaps it is just the one I have, with rough cut pages and uneven alignment but within a firm board and cloth cover In some ways that epitomizes what is inside, a posthumous anthology of unpublished and largely unfinished poems published by the poet s brother Laurence Many other pieces were apparently destroyed on the author s instructions as being unfinished or sub standard, but I suspect some of these would also have fallen fo As a piece of publishing I love this edition of these poems or perhaps it is just the one I have, with rough cut pages and uneven alignment but within a firm board and cloth cover In some ways that epitomizes what is inside, a posthumous anthology of unpublished and largely unfinished poems published by the poet s brother Laurence Many other pieces were apparently destroyed on the author s instructions as being unfinished or sub standard, but I suspect some of these would also have fallen foul of the author s notoriously high standards if it had been his choice What remains are fragments that reveal Housman s skill with words and phrases, but also a glimpse into the frustrations caused by his barely closeted sexuality and atheism These poems offer an insight into the complexities of the private man and his unrequited love, perhaps exacerbated by a sense of classic romanticism, his old school imperialist outlook no doubt shaken by the events of the early years of the 20th century, and an atheism that used Biblical allusion, but without any sense of consolation, even in the poem he wrote for his own funeral

    I think it s the state of the world right now, but these didn t speak to me the way I expected Some gorgeous gems of poetry, but sometimes dire and sad.

    4.1k words, 49 poems fulltext available at Wikilivres but unfortunately their version is riddled with typos A posthumous collection of A.E Housman s poems The tone isconceptual than A Shropshire Lad, with much heavier classical overall, I did not get as much out of the poems.Verses I liked included II When Israel out of Egypt came last 3 stanzas , XXII Ho 4.1k words, 49 poems fulltext available at Wikilivres but unfortunately their version is riddled with typos A posthumous collection of A.E Housman s poems The tone isconceptual than A Shropshire Lad, with much heavier classical Christian influence, and not so much emphasis on the easy flowing rhymes in short lines the lines are often much longer overall, I did not get as much out of the poems.Verses I liked included II When Israel out of Egypt came last 3 stanzas , XXII Ho, everyone that thirsteth , XXVI Good creatures, do you love your lives , XXVII To stand up straight and tread the turning mill , XLVIII Parta Quies plus an honorable mention of XXXI Because I liked you better , which while not really great verse on its own, becomes very moving once you know the autobiographical background.There are two poems in this collection that I really love VII Stars, I have seen them fall , and XLV Smooth between sea and land Unfortunately, they are fairly famous and much quoted, so I had already read them rendering reading More Poems redundant

    I don t really have a good way to read or judge poetry It was certainly harder to read on the bus than prose, because I re read most of them to get the sense of the language But I enjoyed them The one about the Westerly Pleiades I particularly liked the first version of The library copy I read had a couple of bizarre notes in the margins, including a verse of a Willie Nelson song and a library card with 1978 stamped on it I m not sure it s very popular, which is a shame I don t really have a good way to read or judge poetry It was certainly harder to read on the bus than prose, because I re read most of them to get the sense of the language But I enjoyed them The one about the Westerly Pleiades I particularly liked the first version of The library copy I read had a couple of bizarre notes in the margins, including a verse of a Willie Nelson song and a library card with 1978 stamped on it I m not sure it s very popular, which is a shame

    I ve only read a few of these, including the famous Easter Hymn, and even though the expression is flowery and poetic in the traditional sense Housman was a scholar of Swinburne, among others and much mention is made of religious themes, there s a certain not so hidden edge and anger and disillusionment in these poems a questioning of divine mercy Good stuff.

    Stars, I have seen them fall, But when they drop and dieNo star is lost at all From all the star sown sky.The toil of all that be Helps not the primal fault It rains into the sea, And still the sea is salt.

    Of course one of my all time favorite books would read like a classicist s torch song.
