    Overview

    Aims and Scope

    Reading Auden is the first book to consider the poetry of W. H. Auden from the perspective of his own theory of the text, rather than that of the romantic norms he deliberately rejected. According to John R. Boly, Auden departs from the romantics in approaching the poem not as a means of expressing an emotion or conveying an idea but as a game whose goal is the continuous transformation of its own rules of play.
