Auden On Poetry

'Our duty to the city is loyal opposition'

'For poetry makes nothing happen: it survives
In the valley of its making where executives
Would never want to tamper...'

This page is mainly concerned with the writing and enjoyment of poetry. While its main focus in the matter of writing is on the poetry written by its readers. Its main focus of interest in established writers is on the poetry of W.H. Auden; twentieth century poetry in general, but especially Yeats and Eliot; and finally Medieval literature.

Poems and short notes and queries from readers are welcomed and will be published on this page. Please send poems and notes.
