Adlestrop Revisited: An Anthology inspired by Edward Thomas's Poem compiled and edited by Anne Harvey.
Sutton Publishing Ltd. Paperback, £12.99: ISBN 0-7509-2289-3.
Edward Thomas never left the train that stopped briefly at a Cotswold station, Adlestrop, just before the First World War, but what he saw resulted in one of the best known and loved of English poems, 'Adlestrop'. Generations of literary pilgrims have visited the village which inspired the poem, while many of today's writers have composed their own tributes to the poet and the place where, after the closure of the station, the nameboard was lovingly retained.

This anthology explores Adlestrop's literary, topographical and railway associations. Anne Harvey investigates the origins of the poem: did the train really stop "unwontedly"? Was it an express? Was Thomas travelling alone?

The book also examines the connection with Jane Austen, who visited her Leigh relatives at Adlestrop Park and Rectory, and there are poems from Peter Porter, Alan Brownjohn, P J Kavanagh, Dannie Abse and Brian Patten. A wide selection of illustrations includes facsimiles of Edward Thomas's original manuscript and notebook entry, photographs and fine wood engravings by well-known artists. This engaging anthology will appeal to all who have read and loved this classic poem.
