TRIOLET: EARLY TO ELY

Constantia, he called me in those days–

The far-off days when friendship flower’d freely,

Unchoked by weeds. The name in memory stays . . .

Constantia. He called me in those days

When wonder filled our hearts with songs of praise

To rise at dawn and bicycle to Ely.

Constantia, he called me in those days

The far-off days when friendship flower’d freely.

The History of Bloomsbury Publishing

Bloomsbury Publishing was founded in 1986 to publish books of excellence and originality. Its authors include Margaret Atwood, John Berger, William Boyd, David Guterson, Khaled Hosseini, John Irving, Anne Michaels, Michael Ondaatje, J.K. Rowling, Donna Tartt and Barbara Trapido. Its logo is Diana, the Roman Goddess of Hunting.

In 1994 Bloomsbury floated on the London Stock Exchange and added both a paperback and a children’s list. Bloomsbury is based in Soho Square in London and expanded to New York in 1998 and Berlin in 2003. In 2000 Bloomsbury acquired A&C Black and now publishes
Who’s Who, Whitaker’s Almanack, Wisden
Cricketers’ Almanack
and the
Writers’ & Artists’ Yearbook
. Many books, bestsellers and literary awards later, Bloomsbury is one of the world’s leading independent publishing houses.

Launched in 2009, The Bloomsbury Group continues the company’s tradition of publishing books with perennial, word-of-mouth appeal. This series celebrates lost classics written by both men and women from the early twentieth century, books recommended by readers for readers. Literary bloggers, authors, friends and colleagues have shared their suggestions of cherished books worthy of revival. To send in your recommendation, please write to:
