TOP 1000 REVIEWERon 19 May 2014
This short collection of 15 poems and cabaret songs, mainly from the 1930s pre-USA sojourn, was published because of the featuring of "Funeral Blues" in the 1994 smash hit film, "Four Weddings and a Funeral". Whereas "Funeral Blues" captures brilliantly the incongruity where the bereaved thinks the world has come to an end, whilst the world carries on regardless, and "Calypso" is a boisterous love poem, it's the poem "Lullaby", describing the passion of an illicit one-night stand, that has the power and is the outstanding example of Auden's work presented here.
