This fourth volume in a complete edition of W.H. Auden's prose writings provides a unique window upon his mind and art when he was at the height of his powers, from 1956 to 1962, including the years when he was Professor of Poetry at Oxford. The volume includes his most important individual prose collection, "The Dyer's Hand", as well as scores of essays, reviews and lectures on subjects ranging from J.R.R. Tolkien to Martin Luther, psychedelic drugs, cooking and Homer. Much of the material has never been collected in book form, and some of it - including Auden's witty ovations written for Oxford ceremonies - is almost entirely unknown. Edward Mendelson's introduction and notes provide biographical and historical explanations of obscure references. The text incorporates extensive corrections and revisions that Auden marked in is own copies of his work, but which have never been printed.
