The Poetry of Shropshire

Poetry of Shropshire

A.E. Housman put Shropshire on the poetry map with his lyrical evocations of the county’s landscapes but there is a lot more to Shropshire than ‘blue remembered hills’.

Here are poems by established writers that capture the beauties and history of this ancient border land, and newer voices – vibrant and sometimes surprising – that speak clearly about how it feels to work the land, consider the past and walk the hills of this most varied of English counties.
