W.H. Auden

a.k.a. Wystan Hugh Auden

Author Code: EWYA

Born: Feb. 21, 1907 - York, England

Died: Sep. 29. 1973 - Vienna, Austria

Educated at Christ Church, Oxford where he met Cecil Day-Lewis, Louis MacNiece and Stephen Spender, who became known as Auden's Group - because of their collective left-wing views. Following graduation in 1928, Auden travelled to Berlin, returning the following year. The trip woul have a great influence on his work. In England, he worked as a tutor during 1929. In 1930, he published Poems, his first work which was well-received. He took a position at the Larchfield Academy in Scotland that year and in 1935 moved to the Downs School in the Malvern Hills where he taught for the next three years. He then worked as a free-lance reviewer, essayist and lecturer. He also spent three months in Iceland which resulted in his Letters From Iceland (1937). In 1937, he spent a couple of months in Spain during the Civil War. Together with Christopher Usherwood, he spent six months visiting China during the Sino-Japanese War. On his return, he went through the United States and liked it so much that he decided to move there, which he did in 1939. His timing couldn't be worse and his reputation suffered. Nevertheless, he taught at the University of Michigan and Swarthmore College during the war years. He visited Germany with the US Strategic Bombing Survey in 1945, which greatly affected him.On his return, he was a visiting professor and lecturer. In 1946, he became a naturalised citizen of the US. In 1947, he published The Age of Anxiety, one of his most famous works. Auden continued to publish until his death in 1973. His reputation has placed him at the epitome of twentieth century poetry and his influence has been widespread. His many works include The Dance of Death (1933), Look, Stranger! (1936), The Double Man (1941), The Enchafed Flood (1950), Homage to Clio (1960) and The Dyer's Hand (1962).
