After his death in 1973, W.H. Auden was feted in many quarters, and his reputation as one of the most important poets of the 20th century remains secure. The first link will take users to the homepage of the W.H. Auden Society, which works to preserve his legacy and to inform curious readers about his work in general. The helpful materials on this site are contained with seven sections, which include "Books", "Poems", "Recordings", and "News". The "Books" area contains a complete list of Auden's works, along with his plays and libretti. "News" contains information about news stories recently done on Auden, and the "Criticism" area contains a rather thorough listing of introductory studies on Auden, biographies, and concordances. The second link leads to brief, yet delightful collection of Auden's works offered by the Academy of American Poets. The site starts off with a brief biography of Auden, and continues on with the text of eleven poems by the master himself. The real treat is that visitors can also listen to Auden read three of his own works, such as "First Things First" and "On the Circuit".
