Description
The literary executor of W.H. Auden's estate and the author of Early Auden and Later Auden, Edward Mendelson offers this third volume of Auden's prose, from the period of Auden's life—roughly his 40s—when the poet lived in America and summered in Italy, and published his first prose book, The Enchafèd Flood: The Romantic Iconography of the Sea. Auden writes about the imaginary mirrors that everyone carries through life; French existentialism and New Yorker cartoons; Freud, Kierkegaard, Dostoyevsky, and Camus; Keats, Cervantes, Melville, Colette, Byron, Virgil, Yeats, Tolkien, and Virginia Woolf; opera, ballet, cinema, prosody, and music; English and American poetry and society; and politics and religion. The introduction by Edward Mendelson places the essays in biographical and historical context, and the extensive textual notes explain obscure contemporary references and provide an often-amusing history of Auden's work as an editor of anthologies and a series of books by younger poets.
