Collected poems, 1928-1953 by Stephen Spender( Book )
64 editions published between 1950 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 3,313 libraries worldwide
The Collected Poems of Stephen Spender gathers together the renowned poet's major work for the first time in over thirty years. It contains recent uncollected poems, including remembrances of Auden, Stravinsky, and Louis MacNiece, as well as previously uncollected earlier poems based on Rilke, Lorca, and Altoguirre, and choruses from Sir Stephen's version of Sophocles' Oedipus Trilogy. Sir Stephen has also made considerable changes in the texts of his earlier work, eliminating some poems and significantly revising many others. In the introduction he writes: "In reworking poems I have always done so with the sense that in writing a poem I have certain intentions which I very rarely forget. If I take up a notebook and find in it a sketch for a poem which I made many years ago I can remember exactly what I was setting out to do, and I sometimes find that I can continue it as though I had written the sketch yesterday." A poet of engagement, both political and emotional, Stephen Spender has witnessed and vividly described the traumas and trials of his age. This definitive collection stands as his essential testimony.--publisher description

D.H. Lawrence: novelist, poet, prophet by Stephen Spender( Book )
23 editions published between 1958 and 1974 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,623 libraries worldwide
Lawrence was a novelist in the English tradition and also a prophet who related all his ideas to the restless debate going on in his mind about love and sex. The extremes of his personality and his views have provoked nearly all the contributors in this volume to write far beyond the space allotted to each. Some of these essays will be essential reading to the Lawrence student, whilst the collection as a whole will provide an important introduction to him in his time, his friends, and the many places in which he lives and worked

To the Oxford undergraduates Paul, Simon, and William (characters Spender based closely upon himself, W.H. Auden, and Christopher Isherwood) the Weimar Republic seems a kind of paradise.

During parties in the Bauhaus salons of Hamburg and pleasure-trips along the Rhine, Paul falls in love with "The Children of the Sun," as young Germans call themselves- until the shadow of Nazism begins to loom over them all
