Editorial Reviews

Review

Collection of light verse by W.H. Auden, published in 1960. The collection is known for its austere craftsmanship, stylistic variety, and ironic wit. Like many of Auden's later collections of poetry, Homage to Clio is arranged around a theme, in this case, history. The book's only prose piece, "Interlude: An Unwritten Poem," is a witty discourse about the nature of romantic poetry. The poem "On Installing an American Kitchen in Lower Austria" later became the centerpiece of "Thanksgiving for a Habitat," a sequence of poems that appeared in About the House (1965). The last section, entitled "Addendum: Academic Graffiti," contains humorous clerihews, notably about literary figures. -- The Merriam-Webster Encyclopedia of Literature
