W. H. Auden: Poems

Notes

  1. ^ The name Wystan derives from the 9th-century St Wystan, who was murdered by Beorhtwulf, king of Mercia, after Wystan objected to Beorthtwulf's plan to marry Wystan's mother. His remains were reburied at Repton, Derbyshire, where they became the object of a cult; the parish church of Repton is named St Wystan's. Auden's father, George Augustus Auden, was educated at Repton School.
  2. ^ The first syllable of "Auden" rhymes with "law" (not with "how").
  3. ^ Auden, W. H.; ed. by Edward Mendelson (2002). Prose, Volume II: 1939–1948. Princeton: Princeton University Press. p. 478. ISBN 0-691-08935-3.  Auden used the phrase "Anglo-American Poets" in 1943, implicitly referring to himself and T. S. Eliot.
  4. ^ The first definition of "Anglo-American" in the OED (2008 revision) is: "Of, belonging to, or involving both England (or Britain) and America."
