I bought it just for "Funeral Blues",
This review is from: W. H. Auden (Poems selected by John Fuller) (Hardcover)
Away from home for a weekend, I bought it just for "Funeral Blues"; I could not find another edition in a small bookshop and, after we had seen "Four Weddings and a Funeral" in which this poem is read, I wanted a copy. It is always possible to criticise a selected works for the obvious reason and this slim volume with a diachronic selection and a minimalist stark white cover design is open to that criticism but not by me. It has exactly what I was looking for, it was cheap and, when I dippped into it, I discovered a whole selection of Auden's I enjoyed. "Musee des Beaux Arts", "O What is that Sound?", "England to me is My Own Tongue".
For just under £2.00, no-one should complain.
