A Shropshire Lad by A. E. Housman is one of the best-loved books of poems in English, but even now its author remains a shadowy figure.

He maintained an iron reserve about himself - and with good reason.

His emotional life was dominated by an unhappy and unrequited love for an Oxford friend.

His passion went into his writing, but he could barely hint at its cause.

Spoken and Unspoken Love discusses all Housman's poetry, especially the effect of an existence deprived of love, as seen in the posthumous work, where the story becomes clear in personal and deeply moving poems.
