Esteemed Housman scholar Archie Burnett and renowned poetry critic Christopher Ricks take stock of the life and work of British classicist and poet A. E. Housman (1859–1936), who released only two poetry volumes during his lifetime, the popular A Shropshire
Lad
and Last Poems, but remains a “poet about whom poets write poems” (Ricks).
