Book by W. H. Auden

From Publishers Weekly:

First published some 10 years ago in Antaeus magazine, this series of brief meditations was begun by Auden in 1939 and left unfinished. In it the poet seeks truth--political, moral, personal, spiritual--in cautionary reflections and finely ventured definitions that can sting with their meticulously objective slant, yet curiously passionate resonance. Auden will at times advise subversion, for instance, with the steely authority of a priest, but also seems only too aware of the pain that sinners--"all men are sinners"--must feel, regardless. He is most convincing when most palpably aware of the pain and the balancing of pain with the need for judgment. The mounting abstractness of Auden's discourse may be either blessed or damned, but it is exacting, and to some will seem irksome, too persistently high-minded. Yet from his struggles over art and politics, divine and human moral necessities, Auden tore--and honed--remarkably clear and committed thoughts, and they stick: " 'Work' is action forced on us by the will of another"; "Pure evil would be pure passivity"; " . . . intelligence only functions when the animal is unafraid"; and "To be forgiven means to realise that one has never been judged except by oneself."
