A. E. Housman

Faustian joke...

Housman's dilemma. Through Stoppard, playing with Time again, the poet-professor's Old Self is having a chance to set some things straight with his Oxford University student's Young Self.

(Children , think of it! What if the one you will become in your post-adolescent future could visit you in your present times and illuminate your choices? )
