A wonderful collection of correspondence and observation from two masterful poets.
W. H. Auden's first book, Poems, was published by T. S. Eliot at Faber in 1930. He went to Spain during the civil war, to Iceland and later travelled to China. In 1939 he and Christopher Isherwood left for America. He died in Vienna in 1973. Louis MacNeice was born in Belfast in 1907. His first book of poems, Blind Fireworks, appeared in 1929. The Burning Perch, his last volume of poems, appeared shortly before his death in 1963.
