Letters from Iceland by W. H. Auden Letters from Iceland, Paperback (February 2017)

In the summer of 1936, W H Auden and Louis MacNeice visited Iceland on commission to write a travel book, but found themselves capturing concerns on a scale that were far more international. This is a collaboration in poetry and prose, reportage and correspondence, published in 1937 with the Spanish Civil War newly in progress.

A poem written in both prose and verse.

For the Time Being by W. H. Auden 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.

Author Biography - W. H. Auden

W. H. Auden was born in York in 1907 and brought up in Birmingham. His first book, Poems, was published by T. S. Eliot at Faber in 1930. 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.
