Louis MacNeice has often been read in the shadow of his Anglo-American friend Wystan Auden, because few of his own writings are in print. Alan Heuser has edited the present volume - the first of two annotated selections of the hitherto-uncollected prose - so that MacNeice can be seen in his true light. He emerges as a major Anglo-Irish writer: prolific, intelligent, and accessible. The book includes 56 articles of previously neglected prose criticism from 1930 to 1963 to set beside MacNeice's three full-length critical works: "Modern Poetry" (1938), "The Poetry of W.B. Yeats" (1941), and "Varieties of Parable" (1965). The selection - drawn from reviews, articles, drama criticism, and contributions to books not his own - excludes juvenilia but aims to keep a balance between earlier and later work. The subject-matter ranged widely, from the Classical writers to MacNeice's contemporaries.
