Publisher's Description: First published in 1968, this companion volume to the Collected Shorter Poems was compiled by W.H. Auden and brings together six of his longer poetic works, published originally between 1930 and 1947. Auden was one of the modern masters of the extended poem, and these works are among his most original achievements, both for their technical virtuosity and for the emotional and intellectual precision with which they anatomized the malaise and turmoil of their age. The volume includes Paid on Both Sides, Letter to Lord Byron, New Year Letter, For the Time Being, The Sea and the Mirror, and The Age of Anxiety

Selected and edited by Edward Mendelson
The age of anxiety : a baroque eclogue by W. H Auden( Book )

69 editions published between 1900 and 2011 in English and held by 2,023 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When it was first published in 1947,The Age of Anxiety- W.H. Auden's last, longest, and most ambitious book-length poem- immediately struck a powerful chord, capturing the imagination of the cultural moment that it diagnosed and named. Beginning as a conversation among four strangers in a barroom on New York's Third Avenue, Auden's analysis of Western culture during the Second World War won the Pulitzer Prize and inspired a symphony by Leonard Bernstein as well as a ballet by Jerome Robbins. Yet reviews of the poem were sharply divided, and today, despite its continuing fame, it is unjustly neglected by readers. This volume - the first annotated, critical edition of the poem- introduces this important work to a new generation of readers by putting it in historical and biographical context and elucidating its difficulties. Alan Jacobs's introduction and thorough annotations help today's readers understand and appreciate the full richness of a poem that contains some of Auden's most powerful and beautiful verse, and that still deserves a central place in the canon of twentieth-century poetry. -- Book Jacket

"It is a sad fact about our culture", writes Auden, "that a poet can earn much more money writing or talking about his art than he can by practising it ... On the other hand, I have never written a line of criticism except in response to a demand by others for a lecture, an introduction, a review, etc.; though I hope that some love went into their writing, I wrote them because I needed the money."
