The volume has become a classic of English literature and an inspiration to musicians and composers, who have set many of his poems to music. He was not prolific; his total output consists of this volume and one other (Last Poems), but his achievement places him among the world's great poets.
(P)2009 Robert Bethune
Robert Bethune reads with a kind of histrionic cadence that I found to be out of keeping with Housman's style.
