Description:
Paperback / softback. New. Reflects the wealth of forms, the rhetorical and tonal range, and the variousness of content in Auden's poetry. This volume also includes examples of Auden's mastery of light verse: the self-descriptive sequence of haiku called 'Profiles', the barbed wartime quatrains of 'Leap Before You Look', or 'Funeral Blues' itself.
