Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

Christopher Hitchens, the eminent columnist of Vanity Fair, wrote about W.H.Auden (1907-1973): ”Auden had three of the qualities that make poets immortal. He wrote beautifully about love, movingly about war, and he was witty.” (2004). This interactive class is devoted to Auden’s poetry. We will look at his work from multiple perspectives, and from diverse methodological angles. We will have sessions with guest speakers and, should we manage time-wise, travel to Kirchstetten, Lower Austria, where Auden spent a substantial part of his life.
