Wystan Hugh Auden was an Anglo-American poet considered to be one of the greatest writers of the 20th century. He aspired to become a mining engineer till his early teens but soon realized his passion for words and understood that poetry was his calling. In 1928 a friend hand-printed his collection titled ‘Poems’, but it wasn’t until 1930 when another collection, also titled ‘Poems’, with different content was published, that Auden was established as the leading voice of a new generation. His father was a physician and his mother was a strict and devout Anglican, and their collaborative teachings are reflected in Auden’s poems in varying degrees. His poems were penned in almost all imaginable forms of verse with his technical virtuosity being the highlight. He based his poems on popular culture, vernacular speeches and current events with his vast knowledge of a variety of literatures, art forms, social and political theories, and scientific and technical information serving as the inspiration and base. Several of his books and poems were written after his visits to countries torn by political strife. It is said that from the 1930s he became more of a left-wing political poet, but close scrutiny of his works suggests that it was equivocal and appealed to the goodness residing in the heart of every human being
