In a bankruptcy on Auden's elegies, the writer argues that, by myself between examples of this poetic style, they either reverently mourn and harshly scrutinize their matters (Yeats, Freud, Henry James and others).
In a bankruptcy on "structural allusion" in Auden's early poetry, the examine posits that Auden singlehandedly invented a brand new type of allusion during which he alludes to the shape and material of complete poems. yet whereas doing so, he additionally reveals fault with the attitudes (passivity, depression) depicted in them. In those structurally allusive poems - as together with his dating to Hardy, Kierkegaard and his elegies' topics - Auden's occasionally accepting, occasionally skeptical angle towards his poetic types is on strong reveal, and reveals an ideal counterpart within the stress among imitative shape and demanding content.
