Rowse, a friend and colleague of W.H. Auden, provides insight into the life of the great poet, through personal histories and witty criticisms. The memoir-esque recollections include select lines of Auden's poems, travel stories, and details of Auden's political considerations. Rowse argues that Auden's poetic decline coincided with his move to America, while the author's personal biases forward a fresh, albeit partial, understanding of Auden the man.
