Kurzbeschreibung

29. März 2012 Penguin Classics
A.E. Housman was one of the best-loved poets of his day, and A Shropshire Lad and Other Poems is a collection of poems whose elegant simplicity of form belies their hidden complexities. This Penguin Classics edition is introduced by Nick Laird with revisions by Archie Burnett and an afterword by John Sparrow. 'What are those blue remembered hills,What spires, what farms are those?' In this collection, A. E. Housman's poems, including'To an Athlete Dying Young', 'Loveliest of Trees, the Cherry Now' and 'When I Was One-and-Twenty', conjure up a potent and idyllic rural world imbued with a poignant sense of loss and sadness. Their scope is wide - ranging from religious doubt and doomed love to intense nostalgia for the countryside and patriotic celebration of the life of the soldier - and they are made all the more memorable by their distinctive diction and perfectly modulated rhythm and sound. This volume brings together the works Housman published in his lifetime, A Shropshire Lad (1896) and Last Poems (1922), along with the posthumous selections More Poems and Additional Poems, and three translations of extracts from Aeschylus, Sophocles and Euripides that display his mastery of Classical literature. This edition has been revised by Archie Burnett and includes updated notes on the text and indexes of first lines and titles. In his afterword, John Sparrow discusses Housman's methods of writing and melancholic temperament. Alfred Edward Housman (1859-1936) usually known as A.E. Housman, was an English poet and classical scholar, now best known for his cycle of poems A Shropshire Lad. If you enjoyed A Shropshire Lad and Other Poems, you might like John Clare's Selected Poems, also available in Penguin Classics.

Synopsis

A. E. Housman (1859-1936) was one of the best-loved poets of his day, whose poems conjure up a potent and idyllic rural world imbued with a poignant sense of loss and sadness. They are expressed in simple rhythms, yet show a fine ear for the subtleties of metre and alliteration. But despite the simplicity of his verse, his scope is wide-ranging from religious doubt and doomed love to intense nostalgia for the countryside and patriotic celebration of soldiers marching to battle. This volume brings together the works Housman published in his lifetime, "A Shropshire Lad" (1896) and "Last Poems" (1922), along with the posthumous selections "More Poems" and "Additional Poems", and three translations of extracts from "Aeschylus, Sophocles and Euripides" that display his mastery of Classical literature.

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.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Well-formatted for Kindle 3 14. September 2010

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!
