    O My Hornby and My Barlow Long Ago

    O My Hornby And My Barlow Long Ago - The Life Of The Poet Francis Thompson 1859-1907 by Kenneth Shenton

     

    Drugs, decadence, poetry and cricket, all feature strongly in this volume on the Preston born poet, Francis Thompson.

     

    Timed to celebrate the 160th anniversary of his birth, here author Kenneth Shenton also marks the centenary of William Harris's prize winning choral setting of Thompson's masterpiece, The Hound of Heaven.

     

    Featuring prominently too are the exploits of those legendary Lancashire cricketers Thompson famously immortalised in verse, A.N. Hornby and R.G.Barlow, the latter dying exactly one hundred years ago.

     

    'Francis Thompson's life was mixture of depravity and saintliness, laudanum and poetry.'

    J.C. Reid

     

    'Perhaps the shortest definition of the Victorian age is that Francis Thompson stood outside it.'

    G.K. Chesterton
