Wystan Auden

Wystan Auden

English poet, playwright, essayist and critic. Classic English-language poetry of the XX century.
We are not commanded (or forbidden) to love our mates, our children, our friends, our country because such affections come naturally to us and are good in themselves, although we may corrupt them. We are commanded to love our neighbor because our natural attitude toward the other is one of either indifference or hostility. Wystan Auden quotes
