Forewords and afterwords
The essays in this collection have been selected from two sources: reviews written for literary magazines, and introductions to new editions of other writers' works. The essays range over the centuries and Mr Auden's journalism reveals the same wit and intelligence that marked his poetry, though he once said that he wrote his poems for love while he earned his living by prose.
