Only fifteen poems.... all of which are so delicately chosen. What a shame there aren't a hundred and fifteen of Auden's.

It was like tasting one single perfect cocktail snack then being left begging for more. Breathtaking in simplicity, tearjerking for the same reasons.... a gentle knife slicing the skin off one's hardened old heart again.

The book arrived in good condition and in good time. The poems are typically Auden and it is a good introduction to his poetry and also if you are beginning to study poetry for the first time. The book also includes the Funeral Blues poem that was quoted in the film Four Weddings and a Funeral. Overall a good read!

W.H. Auden pins honesty, love and common sense. Powerful poems even today - and especially today - as our society once again is staring into an abyss of another sad period of hypocritical attitudes and intolerance.
