1 Spender, Stephen edit. WH Auden.
McMillan Pub 1975 . 0297768840 / 9780297768845 Hardcover in DJ Good, some soiling to foredges Good some soiling. 
251 pp These thirty-six essays, written by his friends, illuminate every facet of the extraordinary Wystan Hugh Auden who, until his death in Vienna in September 1973, was the world's most celebrated poet. Stephen Spender, an old friend and one of the most eminent poets to come to the fore in the thirties, has assembled a wide spectrum of reminiscences by the men and women who knew Auden best. Some are by those who knew him all his life: Christopher Isherwood, who shared his preparatory school days, and Dr. John Auden, who contributes "A Brother's View." Other essayists cherish vivid personal memories of Auden at particular points in time. In addition to being a tribute, the memoirs in their entirety provide the most revealing "biography" of Auden we are ever likely to have, as well as important new appreciations of his poetry by Cyril Connolly, Geoffrey Grigson, and John Bayley.
