W. H. Auden - The Language of Learning and the Language of Love by W. H. Auden

Book Description

The second volume in the Auden Studies Series, The Language of Learning and the Language of Love considers Auden primarily during the first decade of his literary career as a public figure as well as private man. It includes previously unpublished poems, prose, and letters by Auden - each with a scholarly introduction and full annotation - which reveal how the well-known poet, teacher, dramatist, and sage battled with his literary ancestors, experienced love, and devised a rhetoric to express both homosexual feelings and artistic impulses. Contributions to this volume include poems, songs, and a piece of early travel writing introduced by Auden's new biographer, the historian Richard Davenport-Hines. Lyrics offered to Benjamin Britten as cabaret songs are presented by Donald Mitchell, Philip Reed, and Nicholas Jenkins. Also in the volume is a fascinating array of essays about Auden by leading scholars in the field, including Stan Smith and Katherine Bucknell, and the German scholar and close friend of Auden, David Luke. A further Supplement to B.C. Bloomfield's magisterial Auden Bibliography of 1972 is supplied by Edward Mendelson.

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.

Orators by W. H. Auden Orators, Paperback (September 2015)

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.
