One of the major poets of the twentieth century, W. H. Auden had an enormous influence on succeeding literary generations, in a lifetime which spanned two world wars, the Russian and Chinese revolutions, the rise and fall of fascism, and three decades of cold war. Born English in 1907, Auden became an American citizen in 1946, but spent much of his later years living in Europe, first in Italy and then in Austria, where he died in 1973. In this accessible guide to Auden's life and work, Stan Smith offers the fruits of his extensive knowledge and advanced research. The study is informed by a wide understanding not only of the literary, social and cultural climate in which Auden lived and wrote but also of the literary tradition to which he so richly contributed.
