“mesmeric and compelling”
W. H. Auden (1907-73) was one of the most prolific and versatile poets of this century; and on this recording, made in New York on 12 December 1953, he reads a personal selection from his work. The eighteen poems represent the work of almost two decades, and Auden's distinctive delivery does full justice to his undoubted lyric gift.
