Regular price $125.00 Sale

A philosophical poem by Auden, published in America as "The Double Man." The poem is followed by a series of notes - original reflections in both prose and verse - and quotations from authors on whose work Auden had been meditating, such as Pascal and Kierkegaard. The book then concludes with a series of sonnets. The book as a whole consititutes a complex justification of the philosophical position at which the author had arrived. It is equally of interest to those who are interested in the poety's philosophy of life and those who seek only the pleasure of good poetry.
