QuotationSpender's Collected Poems-a most satisfying book. He has done a better job of versifying than Auden. No man should allow himself to publish so many poems in one volume as Auden did-and now, on top of everything else, the blurb on the back of the volume says "Auden"¦is the most impressive poet of his generation."
