Product description

The Life of Francis Thompson, Catholic poet and inspirational writer 1859-1907. This biographical reappraisal was based on his private notebooks and manuscript evidence. It assesses his life and the continuing relevance of the work of a poet whose best-known piece, The Hound of Heaven, is a landmark in modern English religious literature. This is not only the first complete and accurate portrait of one of the most distinctive voices of late-Romantic poetry, but also a significant study of the literary movement in English Catholicism in the late 1890s and early twentieth century.
Text appears bright and unmarked.Some signs of shelfwear to boards and DJ.
