A E Housman
(1859 - 1936)



"I think that to transfuse emotion--not to transmit thought but to set up in the reader's sense a vibratin corresponding to what was felt by the writer-- is the peculiar function of poetry."

A E Housman

English scholar and celebrated poet whose lyrics express a Romantic pessimism in a spare, simple style.
