W H Auden (1907-73) was considered a leading cultural figure of his generation. His early lyrical work gave way to a period of strongly political verse, during the 1930s. He also wrote political drama, in collaboration with Christopher Isherwood, beginning with "The Dog Beneath the Skin" (1935). In 1939, both Isherwood and Auden emigrated to the USA (they became US citizens in 1946). His late work included opera libretti, such as the text for Stravinsky's "The Rake's Progress" (1951), which was written in collaboration with the US poet Chester Kallmann, Auden's companion for his last 30 years.
