Summary "This volume brings together specially commissioned essays by some of the world's leading experts on the life and work of W.H. Auden, one of the major English-speaking poets of the twentieth century. It offers fresh perspectives on his work from new and established Auden critics, and from specialists in such diverse fields as drama, ecological and travel studies. It provides scholars, students and general readers with a comprehensive and authoritative account of Auden's life and works in clear and accessible English, and contains an extensive bibliography of writings about Auden."--Jacket
