    A friend of Auden and Isherwood and a tireless campaigner for political and civil liberties, Stephen Spender (1909-95) is perhaps the most enigmatic of all the great poets of the 1930s. This magisterial biography follows Spender's life from his Edwardian childhood and the political and sexual liberation of pre-Second World War Oxford and Berlin to the decades of international literary celebrity, when his perfectionism and passionately held beliefs brought him into conflict with many Establishment figures.
