A Shropshire Lad

Without a doubt the best-known of Housman's works, A Shropshire Lad is a phantasmagorical journey into the joy of sorrow and the futility of happiness. As my sister names it, you may find it "dreadful." But if you give it a chance, you may find it fantastic and influential in your way of thinking. Or you may just find it enjoyable reading for a melancholy evening of curling up with a cup of tea and staring out the window at a thunderstorm.
