The Hidden Law: The Poetry of W. H. Auden by Anthony Hecht

This is a book about poetry, about a poet who was dedicated to the art like few others of our time, whose poetic technique only another poet as gifted as Hecht could gloss...The richness of reference in this book to history, prosody, theology, poetry, punctuation, makes for a long swim in the heady liquor of poetry--not only Audens poetry but that of the hundreds of authors whom Auden read...It is a pleasure to read.|The Hidden Laws dispassionate critical voice unfolds a powerful meditation on the vicissitudes of the poetic life...It is at its most significant level a narrative of Anthony Hechts emergence as a poet, and for all that the book tells us by implication, it takes its place alongside MacNeices Yeats and Berrymans Crane.|I know of no other instance of a poet of comparable mastery of his art and his experience taking up in such loving detail the work of a predecessor (and near contemporary).|A work of the most keen-sighted love for the most keen-sighted poet of our century.
