About this title

Synopsis:

The response of one poet to the work of another can be doubly illuminating. In this series, a contemporary poet selects and introduces a poet of the past whom they have particularly admired. By their selection of verses and by the personal and critical reactions they express in their introductions, the selectors offer intriguing insight into their own work, as well as providing an introduction to some of the most influential poets of our time.

About the Author:

W. H. Auden was born in York in 1907, and brought up in Birmi ngham. He went to Christ Church College, Oxford, where Stephen Spender privately printed a booklet of his poems. After university he lived for a time in Berlin, before returning to England to teach. His first book, Poems, was published by T. S. Eliot at Faber in 1930. Other volumes of poems and plays followed during the 1930s. He went to Spain during the civil war, to Iceland (with Louis MacNeice) and later travelled to China. In 1939 he and Christopher Isherwood left for America, where Auden spent the next fifteen years lecturing, reviewing, writing poetry and opera librettos, and editing anthologies. He became an American citizen in 1946, and was awarded the Pulitzer Prize in 1948. In 1956 he was elected Professor of Poetry at Oxford, and a year later went to live in Kirchstetten in Austria, after spending several summers on Ischia. He died in Vienna in 1973.
