AUSTIN, ALFRED .
Songs Of England By Alfred Austin. Poet Laureate .
London: Macmillan And Co, Limited, 1898 . 0. 8vo. [11pp.]/p.12-p.66/[2pp.] . A very good full leather binding. Red morocco over card covers. Gilt title to front board and spine. Light rubbing to edges and spine. All page edges gilt. Decorated endpapers. Clean English text throughout, with light foxing to first few leaves and the last few leaves. A lovely little book. ** Alfred Austin (30 May 1835 – 2 June 1913) was an English poet, who was appointed Poet Laureate in 1896 upon the death of Tennyson.. As poet-laureate, his topical verses did not escape negative criticism; a hasty poem written in praise of the Jameson Raid in 1896 being a notable instance. The most effective characteristic of Austin's poetry, as of the best of his prose, was a genuine and intimate love of nature. His prose idylls, The Garden that I love and In Veronica's Garden, are full of a pleasant, open-air flavour. His lyrical poems are wanting in spontaneity and individuality, but many of them possess a simple, orderly charm, as of an English country lane. He had, indeed, a true love of England, sometimes not without a suspicion of insularity, but always fresh and ingenuous. A drama by him, Flodden Field, was acted at His Majesty's theatre in 1903." - See Wikipedia .
