Zusammenfassung:
W.H. Auden was the greatest English poet of the twentieth century. As witness to many of the century's pivotal moments - Berlin in the 1920s, Spain and China in the 1930s, wartime and postwar America - and because of his consuming quest to translate the social, political, and cultural upheavals into poetry, his importance at century's end is undeniable.

I knew that very moment what I wished to do --
I mean to be a great poet --
I'm king of Berlin --
To love; to be loved; to be a teacher; to be a pupil --
The cold controlled ferocity of the human species --
Mr. Right has come into my life --
Disgraces to keep hidden from the world --
I was glad I could be unhappy --
An I, submissive, felt unwanted and went out.

Abstract:

W.H. Auden was the greatest English poet of the twentieth century. As witness to many of the century's pivotal moments - Berlin in the 1920s, Spain and China in the 1930s, wartime and postwar America - and because of his consuming quest to translate the social, political, and cultural upheavals into poetry, his importance at century's end is undeniable. It is Richard Davenport-Hines' achievement in this biography (the first in fifteen years) to make clear the extent of Auden's achievement - as a poet, a librettist, and an essayist - and to show how his works serve as a commentary on the wars, ideologies, spiritual questioning, and sexual attitudes of the time in which he lived. Auden's ambition was to be a great poet. Beyond his intense need to experience and to be consumed by experience, there was also an inexhaustible curiosity about ideas, a passion for understanding, and a desire for wisdom. In an age when heroic conceptions are no longer useful, Auden's outer and inner travels and his dedication to writing establish his life as a model of what it means to be a poet today, and underscore the tremendous cost, in the words of Auden's friend Hannah Arendt, of following the "heart's invisible furies." In Auden, Davenport-Hines has given us a portrait that is fresh, convincing and exemplary.
