Auden has grown on me. He, so to speak, seeps into your thinking. i had a copy of Auden before I bought this one - a clunking great paperback that needed a table to rest it on to read. This copy, Everyman's Pocket Poets is what it says it is. It is a hardback, (hurrah, more robust) and pocket sized, (hurrah, I can carry it around), it is legible print, on good paper, and it allows me to luxuriate in the perceptions of Auden, and his lovely turns of phrase. Strongly recommended. Oh, and it was very affordable too.

I absolutely love this collection. It's a beautiful cloth bound book with high quality paper, easy to read print and a ribbon bookmark. Perfect size to carry around with you. Plenty of room to add annotations if you would like to. Auden' poetry itself is great, if at times a little difficult to find the meaning of. I really want the rest of the pocket poets collection now!
