The river that is our country runs on, despite crooked hearts. Read W.H. Auden’s “As I Walked Out One Evening” beside your favorite river.
“September 1, 1939” is one of Auden’s most famous poems. But British writer Ian Sansom sees the flaws. His biography of the poem and the poet is marvelous.
Engage with poems from the Common Core with a dose of humor, beginning with our Picture Poems. We start this week with Musee des Beaux Arts by W. H. Auden.
