Francis Thompson was a visionary mystic poet of the late 1890’s, whose work is chiefly associated with rhapsodic accounts of religious experience influenced by seventeenth century Catholic verse. His most famous poem, ‘The Hound of Heaven’, which describes the pursuit of the human soul by God, won instant critical acclaim, securing its status as a classic of English poetry. Thompson also produced elegant and poignant short poems, including ‘At Lord’s’, a nostalgic elegy on the sport of cricket. The Delphi Poets Series offers readers the works of literature’s finest poets, with superior formatting. For the first time in digital publishing, this eBook offers Thompson’s complete works, with related illustrations and the usual Delphi bonus material. (Version 1)
