W. H. Auden
Edited by Edward Mendelson

Book Description | Table of Contents
Chapter 1 [in PDF format]

ADDITIONAL REVIEWS:

Praise for the previous volume: "When you add in the volumes already devoted to plays, libretti, poems, it becomes hard to avoid describing the whole enterprise as heroic. In fact it could also be described as unique, for no other twentieth-century English poet has been so fully and patiently honoured."--Frank Kermode, London Review of Books

Praise for the previous volume: "No major writer's complete works are more fun to read."--Publishers Weekly

"While most pieces of the volume can be found in other manners, this compilation enables readers to discover more easily and efficiently gems of prose phrasing about poetry, criticism and their purpose, and the poet's readings of and connections between his work and that of his contemporaries and predecessors in significantly contemplative years of his life."--Emily Kane, Review of English Studies
