The Dyer's Hand
Sorry, this item is now out of stock.
In the early 1950s, WH Auden began planning a prose volume that would bring together published essays, lectures and reviews, together with some new material. The Dyer's Hand, which eventually appeared in 1962, is his only cohesive book of prose, and one of his most original works. Wide-ranging, informal yet erudite, it contains his thoughts on music in Shakespeare, DH Lawrence, Robert Frost, Marianne Moore, 'translating opera libretti', and 'all the autobiography I am willing to make public'.
