A great introduction to Auden, one of the preeminent poets of the 20th century (top five for me). This edition is a great place to start and includes the wonderful poems that he eventually renounced and disowned including “September 1, 1939,” the complete sonnet sequence “In Time of War,” and all of the stanzas of “In Memory of W.B. Yeats.” A poet of genius and rare gifts. Here are all of his best poems, poems that stand with any in the language and will be read as long as people care about words pleasingly arranged in a masterful balance of form and content. ~ Reviewed by Dafydd Wood
