Two long-standing residents of Grantchester have produced a lovely book in anticipation of the centenary, in 2012, of Rupert Brooke's famous poem The Old Vicarage, Grantchester.
The book celebrates the poem and the village that was its inspiration. It will be a delight to those who know the poem already, and a good introduction to those who do not, in particular the younger generation. It contains the full text of the poem, a short biography of Rupert Brooke and history of Grantchester, and an explanatory commentary on each section of the poem. It is illustrated on each page by beautiful and evocative photographs of the village and its surroundings. All proceeds will be passed to local good causes.
