A Shropshire Lad
with Agnes Miller Parker's beautiful engravings
Reprint, hardback in dustwrapper. 22.5 × 14.5cm, 95pp.
This magical and poignant evocation of coming of age in the countryside describes lovers in secluded lanes, cricket and church bells, cherry trees hung with snow and woods full of bluebells. Yet in "A Shropshire Lad" the fields and hills are also places of loss and sorrow, where men die young or are sent far away to fight in foreign wars. Aching with longing for a vanished world, these exquisite verses are a meditation on the fleeting nature of love, youth and happiness.
This edition is beautifully illustrated with woodcuts by Agnes Miller Parker.
The book itself is in very good condition. The dustwrapper is edgeworn with some surface tanning but has not been price-clipped and is now within a protective sleeve.
