ABSTRACT
This article discusses the book "Auden," by Richard Hoggart. With a poet so richly endowed and so committed to tireless communication, the critic's task is less one of explication than of simple ordering of profusion. Hoggart, in this excellent first full-length study, has accomplished the ordering and gone beyond. With good sense he has organized his subject chronologically, relating the early poems to their governing ideas, then showing how these ideas developed and deepened in the later, longer works.
