Alfred Edward Housman (1859-1936) is a good example that sometimes the poet does not match the man who inhabits. Other examples may perhaps be avant-garde Catalan JV Foix and the German Gottfried Benn.
As a citizen Housman was upright, rigid customs lover, who firmly believed that injustice and slavery were indispensable to civilized society and keep people procure their position they enjoyed peace.
As a poet, however, Housman detested laws of man and his God, abominable customs that prevented a man openly confess their sexual preferences, and inflicted on the society in which he lived epigrams that distilled cynicism and resentment. W. H. Auden, reviewing the book on his brother Laurence Housman to draft, said that few men had kept inside, so clearly points to the Lord and Satan within us all.
Even in literary disciplines attended, Housman distinguish their Lord knew his Satan. While corresponded to the first detailed study of the Latin classics scoring for scholars dark consumption, the second showed his disdain for the intellectual aspects of poetry, and called for sobriety and simplicity of poetic thought as essential vehicles for expression in verse.
