The Age of Anxiety

The Age of Anxiety by W. H. Auden, edited by Alan Jacobs

I started reading the new critical edition of Auden’s the Age of Anxiety yesterday. Or, rather, I started reading Jacobs’ foreword to the poem. So far, I am very impressed. Auden was about my current age when he began writing¬†The Age of Anxiety (something which, in itself, seems impossible), and so far it’s eery how many of my own concerns and anxieties are addressed in the poem.
