Forewords and Afterwords by W. H. Auden
Book DescriptionThe essays in this collection were written as reviews, mainly for The New York Review of Books and The New Yorker , on books by or about Alexander Pope, Vincent van Gogh, Thomas Mann, Virginia Woolf, Oscar Wilde, and A. E. Housman, or as introductions to editions of the classical Greek writers, the Protestant mystics, Shakespeare, Goethe, Kierkegaard, Tennyson, Grimm and Andersen, Poe, G. K. Chesterton, Paul Valery, and others.Throughout, these prose pieces reveal the same wit and intelligence--as well as the vision--that sparked the brilliance of Auden's poetry."

Books By Author W. H. Auden
Orators, Paperback (September 2015)
A poem written in both prose and verse.
For the Time Being, Hardback (May 2013)
Auden's only explicitly religious long poem, a technical tour de force, and a revelatory window into the poet's personal and intellectual development. This edition includes the text of the poem and a detailed introduction that explains its themes and sets it in its proper contexts.
Dyer's Hand, Paperback (February 2013)» View all books by W. H. Auden
In the early 1950s the author began planning a prose volume that would bring together some of his published essays, lectures, and reviews, together with freshly-written notes and aphorisms. This book combines earlier material with revised versions of many of his Oxford lectures.
