Notes from Auden Land

Poetry Foundation

This a a prose article about Poetry. It shows off both to good advantage.

Auden moved to the States in 1939 – as part of the Brain Drain, where England’s smartest and brightest, moved to greener pastures.

I knew a woman once, who as a young English woman in WWII, seduced a GI, made him marry her, moved to the States – and then got rid of the husband. Her daughter was my live-in girlfriend in the Seventies, and continued the family tradition – give them sex, take what they got – and leave them abruptly.
