On Auden

In the fifties I read a bit of Auden and liked his poetry and still remember some of it. But I never bothered to find any thing about him. It seems that he was a nice fellow. From The Secret Auden:
"W.H. Auden had a secret life that his closest friends knew little or nothing about. Everything about it was generous and honorable. He kept it secret because he would have been ashamed to have been praised for it."
