Here for your delectation is the SPECTACULAR & RARE-------A.E. HOUSMAN: THE SCHOLAR-POET by Richard Perceval Graves.
This magnificent biography contains a number of unpublished pieces by Housman, including portions of light verse, a diary entry, extracts from two letters, etc.
A superb bio of the scholar poet. The structure is interesting. First, the author presents a chronological look at Housman's life with some salient facts, emphasizing the most important influences in his life. The latter part of the book is devoted to closer scrutiny of the different aspects of his work and personal affairs taken separately: classical studies, family relationships, friendships, etc.
Tom Stoppard's play, " Invention of Love " deals with Housman's somewhat tortured, but extremely productive life.
PLUS----there are loads of archival photos.
This is the hardcover stated Scribner's First U.S. Edition from 1980. Other than a clipped back cardholder flyleaf (ex libris) and a few discreet hi-lites and underlines in the first chapter, both the mylar-covered DJ and the book are in very good condition. There are no rips, tears, etc.--and the pages and binding are tight (see photo). Check my feedback to see that I sell exactly as I describe. I gladly accept PayPal. I will ship internationally for additional charges. So bid soon for this terrific LITERARY BIOGRAPHY COLLECTIBLE.
