voice of the poet

Bold Type's Poetry Editor Ernest Hilbert writes on Auden: "As with such giants as Henri Mattisse and Ludwig von Beethoven, it is customary to divide W.H. Auden's career into two distinct phases, bisected, in his case, by the Second World War. The earlier poetry, particularly that of the thirties, is defined by a preoccupation with political and historical matters, while that of the forties, fifties, and particularly the sixties, is concerned with more modest affairs such as friendship and the household."

Hear Auden read 'More Loving One' and read an essay on the W.H. Auden Voice of the Poet recordings.
