W. H. Auden, (1907-1973) , a major poet of the modern period, is typically modern in his choice of subject, technique and articulation. Like T.S. Eliot he represents the dreadful picture of a modern spiritual ice-age in his poetry in his perspectives of history, theology and philosophy. Using the desolate and rocky background of Post-War Europe of 1930’s he delineates the rise of dictatorship, the exploitation of the poor and under privileged, economic disparity, spiritual bankruptcy, anxiety and boredom of modern life.
