Character description

Alfred Edward Housman (1859-1936). Best known for his poetry, although he published only two volumes, A Shropshire Lad and Last Poems, in his lifetime. It is believed that most of these poems were written in a short period, in the aftermath of a failed homosexual love involvement. He was left a bitter and withdrawn man, and it showed in his poems, which were nonetheless very popular. He took refuge in academic work, being for many years a professor of Latin. His main work on classical literature was on the Latin writer Manilius, whose work held little interest for him but whose text offered much scope for his skills. His essays on textual criticism are widely quoted in the field for their wit and brevity. His younger brother was Laurence Housman.
