Two children, Conrad and his little sister Sanna - set out from the village high up in the Alps to visit their grandparents in the neighboring valley. It is the day before Christmas but the weather is mild, and their grandparetns receive them joyously, with gifts, and kisses . On their way home, snow begins to fall. Undaunted, the chldren, press on, until it is deep ngiht when the sky clears and they've discovered themselves out on a glacier, terrifying and beautiful, the heart of the void. 76p.

    When it was first publihsed in 1947, THE AGE OF ANXIETY - W.H. Auden's last, longest, and most ambitious book-length poem - immediateloy struck a powerful chord, capturing the imagination of the cultural moment that it diagnosed and named. Beginining as a conversation among four strangers in a barroom on New York's Third Avenue, Auden's analysis of Western culture druing the Second World War won the Pulitzer Prize and inspired a symphony by Leonard Bernstein as well as a ballet by Jerome Robbins. This volume - the first annotated, critical edition of the poem - introduces this important work to a new generation of readers by putting it in historical and biographical context and elucidating its difficulties. Appendix, Textual Notes. 144p.

    This sixth and final volume of W. H. Auden's prose displays a great writer's mind in its full maturity of wisdom, learning, and emotional and moral intelligence. It contains the full text of the only book that he regarded as an autobiography,A Certain World, in which he portrayed himself by selecting and commenting on writings by others that most affected him throughout his life. It also features late essays and reviews that in many cases present lightly disguised autobiographies, among them the most detailed account of his sexuality, in "Papa Was a Wise Old Sly-Boots." The appendixes gather lectures and public talks that are otherwise unpublished or unavailable.Edward Mendelson's comprehensive notes provide biographical and historical explanations of obscure references. The text includes corrections and revisions that Auden marked in personal copies of his work and that are published here for the first time.

    "It is wonderful to have this new edition of "The Sea and the Mirror," which I have always considered Auden's greatest work written in America and certainly one of the summits of his career. The long speech of Caliban, channeling Henry James, is in itself a marvelment."--John Ashbery"The most significant of all Auden's unpatriotic Shakespearean forays of the 1940s, "The Sea and the Mirror" is a work of enormous skill, learning, and intelligence, a stylistic tour de force that is also freakish, polemical, confessional, and open-ended. It is a poem that comes much nearer to being a major salvo in Auden's cultural war with Little Englandism than it does to being the modest academic 'commentary' that on the title page it rather deviously declares itself to be. Arthur Kirsch's edition of this work is a fine addition to the canon of Auden scholarship. This book will fascinate all readers of Auden, and of Shakespeare."--Nicholas Jenkins
