To An Athlete Dying Young

Publication Date: May 18, 2016

Chapter: The Twentieth Century

This poem is a tribute to an athlete who died young (obviously), a marathon runner by all appearances. He used to run through town, but his final race was being carried in a casket. You'd be forgiven for thinking we were reading Hardy again.

Author: A.E. Housman • Year: 1896 • Info: Wikipedia
