Auden's most exciting work is found in his early volumesPoems (1930) and On This Island (1937)

  • For the first part of his career, was very much the poet of his times (i.e. of the Depression).

  • He preferred to confront modern problems directly rather than to filter them, as Eliot did, through symbolic situations.

  • Another Time (1940) shows greater control and less violence.

  • Nones (1951) shows most clearly his characteristic way of combining or alternating the grave and the flippant

  • In About the House (1967) and City without Walls (1970), poems are increasingly personal in tone and combine an apparent air of offhand informality with remarkable technical skill in versification

  • Auden grew increasingly hostile to the modern world and skeptical of all remedies offered for modern ills

  • Refuge in friendship, and in an ever deepening religious feeling.
