The 80th anniversary of the death of the classical scholar and poet A. E. Housman is on the 30th of this month. Housman was the Kennedy Professor of Latin at Trinity from 1916 onwards. The Wren Library has an autograph copy of his best-known collection, A Shropshire Lad, given by Housman in 1926. Housman published the series of 63 poems at his own expense in 1896, but it has remained in print ever since. The manuscript has recently been added to the Wren Digital Library.
