9780571283507: The Dyer's Hand

In the early 1950s Auden began planning a prose volume that would bring together some of his published essays, lectures, and reviews, together with newly-written notes and aphorisms. In 1956 he was elected Professor of Poetry at Oxford, and The Dyer's Hand appeared in 1962, combining earlier material with revised versions of many of his Oxford lectures: The result is one of Auden's most original works, his only book of prose devised as a single cohesive work about disparate subjects, and containing as he remarked at the time - 'all the autobiography I am willing to make public'.
'Speaking for myself, the questions which interest me most when reading a poem are two. The first is technical: "Here is a verbal contraption. How does it work?" The second is, in the broadest sense, moral: "What kind of a guy inhabits this poem? What is his notion of the good life or the good place? His notion of the Evil One? What does he conceal from the reader? What does he conceal even from himself?" - W. H. Auden (inaugural lecture as Professor of Poetry at Oxford, June 1956).

About the Author:

W. H. Auden was born in York in 1907, and brought up in Birmingham. His first book, Poems, was published by T. S. Eliot at Faber in 1930. He went to Spain during the civil war, to Iceland (with Louis MacNeice) and later travelled to China. In 1939 he and Christopher Isherwood left for America, where Auden spent the next fifteen years lecturing, reviewing, writing poetry and opera librettos, and editing anthologies. He became an American citizen in 1946, and was awarded the Pulitzer Prize in 1948. In 1956 he was elected Professor of Poetry at Oxford, and a year later went to live in Kirchstetten in Austria, after spending several summers on Ischia. He died in Vienna in 1973.

Descrizione libro Pan, 2012. Condizione libro: New. In the early 1950s, WH Auden began planning a prose volume that would bring together published essays, lectures and reviews, together with some new material. The Dyer's Hand, which eventually appeared in 1962, is his only cohesive book of prose, and one of his most original works. Wide-ranging, informal yet erudite, it contains his thoughts on music in Shakespeare, DH Lawrence, Robert Frost, Marianne Moore, 'translating opera libretti', and 'all the autobiography I am willing to make public'.
