In 1922, as a 15-year-old schoolboy, Auden decided to become a poet. In 1928, just down from Oxford, he produced his first book, "Poems", printed by his friend Stephen Spender. During his years of apprenticeship Auden wrote over 200 poems, and all which survive are included in this book.

Review:
"Katherine Bucknell has done an excellent job as an editor. . . . [Auden] would have acknowledged that this is the way scholarship should go about its job."--John Bayley, Times Literary Supplement

"Auden's Poems (1930) [is] one of the century's most weirdly original first books. Thanks to Katherine Bucknell, we can now ponder in detail how he got there."--Ian Hamilton, London Review of Books

"As loving and meticulous and informing an edition as any writer, young or old, could wish for. . . . Watching Auden invent Audenesque is one of the many joys of this volume."--Valentine Cunningham, Chicago Tribune

"Containing more than two hundred poems, the book chronicles Auden's progress from his first verses, written when he was fifteen years old . . . As one of the most complete and scrupulous accounts of a major poet's apprenticeship, it offers what amounts to a series of master classes in the development of poetic talent and the acquisition of rhetorical skill."--Poetry

From the Back Cover:

"Auden's early poems form a crucial chapter in the history of his imagination. By collecting and annotating these poems with an elegant scrupulosity, Katherine Bucknell has produced a very valuable addition to Auden studies and an indispensable book for the study of modern poetry."--J. D. McClatchy, Editor, The Yale Review


"The evolution of a great poet is abundantly manifest here, in a volume essential not only to lovers of Auden himself, but to all who are intrigued by chrysalid mysteries."--John Fuller, Magdalen College, Oxford
