Wystan Auden

Wystan Auden

English poet, playwright, essayist and critic. Classic English-language poetry of the XX century.
The masculine imagination lives in a state of perpetual revolt against the limitations of human life. In theological terms, one might say that all men, left to themselves, become gnostics. They may swagger like peacocks, but in their heart of hearts they all think sex an indignity and wish they could beget themselves on themselves. Hence the aggressive hostility toward women so manifest in most club-car stories. Wystan Auden quotes
