W.H. Auden

Wystan Hugh Auden, published as W. H. Auden, is regarded as one of the greatest writers of the 20th century. Born in England and naturalized as an American citizen, he is noted for his variety of tone and content and for his characteristic reference of moral and political topics. A poet and writer of prose, essays, reviews, documentary films, plays, and opera, he was both controversial and influential during his life.
