Summary:
The third volume of Auden Studies presents Auden in maturity, and includes a large amount of his unpublished prose. The book concentrates on Auden's relatively underexplored post-1940 writings, and the letters, essay, and lectures printed here demonstrate the Goethean scope of his intellect, which ranged easily and illuminatingly from psychoanalysis to theology, archaeology to politics.
