Auden grew up in Birmingham, England and was known for his extraordinary intellect and wit. Much of his poetry is concerned with moral issues and evidences a strong political, social, and psychological context. While the teachings of Marx and Freud weighed heavily in his early work, they later gave way to religious and spiritual influences.
Caliban's last sigh
By the mid—s W. Auden was the most famous and most widely imitated young poet in England. His verse was brilliant, ironic, often funny, wide—ranging in its reference—equally at home in the worlds of Anglo—Saxon heroic poetry and the technology of mining—and sometimes impenetrably obscure. But this widely recognized leader of the British intellectual avant—garde was an unhappy and confused young man. Auden had been unable to believe in God since his adolescence.

Traversing W.H. Auden's Religious and Aesthetic States
Swarthmore College's Auden Collection was established through donations from Auden himself most notably, the gift of a manuscript notebook from the s , the gathering of material "evidence" of his tenure here a typewriter and correspondence with faculty members , and the varied and sometimes amusing traces the poet-professor left behind on campus and in the library articles in the Swarthmore College newspaper and annotated copies of a few of his own works. In addition to housing unique artifacts from Auden's time at the college, the collection consists of approximately items, including many first editions of books, pamphlets, and broadsides, as well as secondary literature and sound recordings. For access to this collection, or to explore other special collections in the Rare Book Room , please contact the Circulation Desk. Many thanks also to the Estate of W. Auden for generously granting permission to reproduce images of Auden's typescript and handwritten Romanticism chart, the revisions to The Ascent of F6 , his letter to the library, and his Vocation and Society speech. If you have questions or comments about this exhibit, please contact Kate Carter or Anna Goslen.
The poem begins in a theater after a performance of The Tempest has ended. The Sea and the Mirror has ambitions far above those which the modest label of 'A commentary' might suggest, and it attempts to clarify an entire aesthetic, both for the poet himself and on a more abstract level for all poetry and art in its relation to reality. Nor was this a question of aesthetics only, for Auden was determined that this work should offer a distinctively Christian philosophy of art, one which could announce, and validate, an entirely new depth and seriousness to his own life and writing. You can find the text in various Auden collections, but you'll never regret investing in this handsome edition of these tender, heartbroken poems. The long speech of Caliban, channeling Henry James, is in itself a marvelment. It is a poem that comes much nearer to being a major salvo in Auden's cultural war with Little Englandism than it does to being the modest academic 'commentary' that on the title page it rather deviously declares itself to be.

Auden , written —44, and first published in The poem is a series of dramatic monologues spoken by the characters in Shakespeare's play after the end of the play itself. These are rendered in a variety of verse forms from villanelles, sonnets, sestinas, and finally Jamesian prose, the forms corresponding to the nature of the characters e. Ferdinand addresses Miranda in a sonnet, a form traditionally amenable to expressions of love. A critical edition with introduction and copious textual notes by Arthur Kirsch was published in by Princeton University Press.
Although it is now standard practice in academic publishing, it seems odd that "advance praise" blurb should have been provided for a reprint of a poem that first appeared in the s. Odder still that the dust jacket should then quote, from Sylvia Plath's Journals , a description not of the poem but the poet: "Auden God, god, the stature of the man. The publishers of this critical edition presumably sense that Auden's stature is not what it was; Plath, though, should attract the attention of a large contemporary readership. It is also an expertly revealing sketch: Auden the compulsive lecturer; the chain-smoking, roving don.
