    (New York Review Books Classics series). Poet W.H. Auden assembled this selection from Kierkegaard's work, which draws on both the Danish philosopher's many published works as well as his voluminous private journals. This celebrated anthology pertains to the main themes in Kierkegaard's oeuvre: his insistence on the irreducible subjectivity of truth, his dramatic presentation of the conflicts between the aesthetic, ethical, and religious ways of life, his analysis of despair and its relation to faith - while also doing justice to the extraordinary variety of his writings, which range from concise aphorisms to pedal-to-the-floor polemics. 245p.

    W.H. Auden is unquestionably one of the most fascinating and influential literary figures of the twentieth century. His formal innovations in poetry and drama have immeasurably affected modern literary consciousness, as have his reactive views about political and literary trends. At the time he wrote The Prolific and the Devourer, Auden was moving away from his vocal Marxism of the 1930s toward a committed Christianity in the 1940s and beyond. The Prolific and the Devourer sheds new light on the personal and public worlds he inhabited, philosophically drawing the line between the position of the artist and that of the politician.The book takes its title and, in part, its form from William Blake's The Marriage of Heaven and Hell. In Auden's interpretation, the Prolific are those who produce: the farmer; the skilled worker; the scientist; the cook; the innkeeper; the doctor; the teacher; the athlete; the artist. The Devourers are the political types who depend on what is already produced for their well-being: the "Judges, Policemen, Critics. These are the real Lower Orders, the low, sly lives, whom no decent person should receive in his house." As in Blake, the sections and subsections of Auden's book are unified and propelled by the oracular need to express the key components of human nature.The first section contains a series of aphoristic statements and personal reflections that usher us into the enormous territory to be explored. In the second section, Auden chooses examples from politics, religion, and literature to expound his views on human and historical evolution. The third section examines the characters of the Prolific and the Devourer in relation to Catholic, Protestant, and Romantic traditions and to Socialist and Fascist beliefs. The question and answer form employed in the final section allows Auden to reveal his inner struggle to reach some understanding of God, the supernatural, and pacifism.At a time when spiritual and political values are constantly at odds, with the frequent result of violence, the questions of "being" Auden addresses in this book are highly topical - and his insights, invaluable. The Prolific and the Devourer acts as a tribute to the artistic vocation it describes - remarkable in its visionary breadth and craft.

    First published in 1774, The Sorrows of Young Werther inspired a mass cult of feelings and made its author one of the first literary celebrities. Goethe's story of a tormented young man whose fixation on an inaccessible woman culminates in tragedy may be read as a celebration of unfettered emotion or as a mercilessly accurate portrait of a man whosededication to pure gfeelingturns him into a monster.
