Collected Longer Poems

Between 1927 and his death in 1973, W.H. Auden endowed poetry in the English language with a new face. Or rather, with several faces, since his work ranged from the political to the religious, from the urbane to the pastoral, from the mandarin to the invigoratingly plain-spoken. This collection presents all the poems Auden wished to preserve, in the texts that received his final approval. It includes the full contents of his previous collected editions along with all the later volumes of his shorter poems. Together, these works display the astonishing range of Auden's voice and the breadth of his concerns, his deep knowledge of the traditions he inherited, and his ability to recast those traditions in modern times.

  • "A collection of poems by W.H. Auden (1907- ), an English poet and dramatist whose most influential work was written during the 1930s. He was the best known of a group of British writers of Marxist sympathies who hoped that socialism might be the answer to the economic and political problems of the period. In 1939, he immigrated to America and later became a U.S. citizen, and Christianity (specifically the influence of Kierkegaard and the modern Protestant theologians) took the place of socialism as Auden's central preoccupation."

  • "Publisher's Description: First published in 1968, this companion volume to the Collected Shorter Poems was compiled by W.H. Auden and brings together six of his longer poetic works, published originally between 1930 and 1947. Auden was one of the modern masters of the extended poem, and these works are among his most original achievements, both for their technical virtuosity and for the emotional and intellectual precision with which they anatomized the malaise and turmoil of their age. The volume includes Paid on Both Sides, Letter to Lord Byron, New Year Letter, For the Time Being, The Sea and the Mirror, and The Age of Anxiety."@en
  • "In honor of the centennial of the poet's birth, a definitive anthology of works collects all of the poems Auden wished to preserve, in the versions he approved as final, providing the full range of the great poet's work between 1930 and 1974."@en

  • "To commemorate the centennial of W.H. Auden's birth, the Modern Library offers this elegant edition of the collected poems of one of the greatest poets of the twentieth century. This volume includes all the poems that Auden wished to preserve, in a text that includes his final revisions, with corrections based on the latest research. Auden divided his poems into sections that corresponded to what he referred to as chapters in his life, each one beginning with a change in his inner life or external circumstances: the moment in 1933 when he first knew "exactly what it means to love one's neighbor as oneself"; his move from Britain to America in 1939; his first summer in Italy in 1948; his move to a summerhouse in Austria in 1958; and his return to England in 1972. --Random House / Modern Library."@en
