Abstract:

This volume - Mr. Auden's first collection of new poems since About the House (1965) - reveals the continuing development of one of the most remarkable poetic voices of our time. Mr. Auden's new book opens on a note of dread and anger, though touched with irony, and concludes with a prologue which celebrates the well-remembered world that made him, acknowledges with some affection the city that now houses him, and prays that he and an increasingly alien world may still have a voice in common.
