Composed while Housman was living in London, and mostly before he even visited the county of Shropshire, A Shropshire Lad is a cycle of 63 poems which describe an idyllic rural existence, but with the main theme being young mens' early deaths. This led its popularity during the Second Boer War, and then later during WWI. - Summary by clarinetcarrot
