Reader's note

Our vintage books make beautiful literary gifts. New Poems by Francis Thompson 1897 is a delightful dose of nostalgia and a lovely gift for you or your favourite bookworm. Born in Lancashire in 1859, Francis Thompson was a colourful character best known for his poem The Hound of Heaven. He spent a period of time as a vagrant and opium addict and even attempted to commit suicide before getting his life back together at a priory in Storrington. Even though he discovered some success with his poetry in later years, he lived most of his life struggling to make ends meet. The poem The Hound of Heaven was often recited by school children in the years after Thompson’s death, a tale of a lost soul being pursued by God. The poem is all the more startling in that he was such a troubled person, still battling his addiction and ill health. Between 1893 and ’97, he published three collections including Poems, Sister Songs and New Poems. A gem among a bounty of stunning vintage books and classic novels on our online used bookstore.
