Containing all the essays and reviews that Auden wrote when he lived in England, this volume also includes the full original versions of his two travel books, "Letters From Iceland" (with Louis MacNeice) and "Journey to a War" (with Christopher Isherwood). Auden's early prose ranges from extravagant, indiscreet travel diaries to sharply observed critiques of writers from John Skelton to Winston Churchill. It includes studies of communism and Christianity, wide-ranging essays on literature, psychology and politics, and writings about gossip, sex, prisons and schools. The verse "Last Will and Testament", from "Letters From Iceland", is annotated.
