Forewords and Afterwords by W. H. Auden

Book Description

The 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."

Dyer's Hand by W. H. Auden Dyer's Hand, Paperback (February 2013)
