"This book is the history of Auden's poems, and of the private and public events that went into them, from the time he moved from England to America in 1939 until his death in 1973. It completes the story begun in Edward Mendelson's Early Auden, and is even more revelatory about Auden's thought, life, and work." "Later Auden links the many changes in Auden's intellectual, emotional, religious, and erotic life with his shifting public role as a representative of political causes, as a uniformed researcher working with the U.S. Army in postwar Germany, as a public moralist, and above all as a poet."--BOOK JACKET

The things that matter : what seven classic novels have to say about the stages of life by Edward Mendelson ( Book )
9 editions published between 2006 and 2013 in English and held by 932 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
An exploration of how seven of the greatest English novels of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries portray the essential experiences of life. For Mendelson--a professor of English and comparative literature at Columbia University--these classic novels tell life stories that are valuable to readers who are thinking about the course of their own lives. Looking beyond theories to the individual intentions of the authors and taking into consideration their lives and times, Mendelson examines the sometimes contradictory ways in which the novels portray such major passages of life as love, marriage, and parenthood.--From publisher description
Prose and travel books in prose and verse by W. H Auden ( Book )
14 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 815 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Volume 1. This book contains all the essays and reviews that W. H. Auden wrote during the years when he was living in England, and also includes the full original versions of his two illustrated travel books, Letters from Iceland (written in collaboration with Louis MacNeice) and Journey to a War (written in collaboration with Christopher Isherwood). Auden's early prose ranges from extravagant indiscreet travel diaries through sharply observed critiques of writers from John Skelton to Winston Churchill. It includes studies of communism and Christianity; audaciously wide-ranging essays on literature, psychology, and politics; and writings about gossip, sex, prisons, and schools. Volume 2. W. H. Auden's first ten years in the United States were marked by rapid and extensive change in his life and thought. He became an American citizen, fell in love with Chester Kallman, and began to reflect on American culture and to explore the ideas of Reinhold Niebuhr and other Protestant theologians. This volume contains every piece of prose that Auden wrote during these years, including essays and reviews he published under a pseudonym. Most have never been reprinted in any form since their initial publication in such magazines and newspapers as the Nation, the New Republic, Common Sense, Vogue, and the New York Times
