A.E. Housman (1859-1936) used to be a guy of many obvious contradictions, so much of which stay unresolved a hundred and fifty years after his start. without delay a deeply emotive lyric poet and an exact and devoted classical pupil, he accomplished reputation in either one of those different disciplines. even if his poetic legacy has obtained a lot scholarly research, and but extra consciousness has been dedicated to reconstructing his deepest existence, no earlier paintings has excited by Housman the classical pupil; but it's upon scholarship that Housman such a lot needed to go away his mark.

This well timed number of papers through prime students reassesses the breadth and value of Housman's contribution to classical scholarship in either his released and unpublished writings, and discusses how his mantle has been handed directly to later generations of classicists.
