HERMAN MELVILLE

by Auden, W. H

  • Used
  • Signed
London: Author, 1939. typescript signed. Leaf. Very Good +. TLS of "Herman Melville" Signed by the poet, W.H. Auden, n.d., on two typed sheets consisting of 7 stanzas and one line. In this penetrating poem about Herman Melville, Auden blended psychosexual insights, aspects of Christian Agape, and biographical tidbits about the author, who--with Hawthorne--was one of the great literary depth-psychologists of New England Puritanism. John Fuller, W.H. Auden: A Commentary, discusses this poem (p.259): observing that Auden also "brilliantly" discussed psychoanalytic implications of Moby Dick in The Enchafèd Flood (1950). Faint indication of a rusty paperclip at the top of the first sheet.

A book of meditations. A revealing spiritual self-portrait by one of the great peacemakers of our times. — Maturity: Among other things, the unclouded happiness of the child at play who takes it for granted that he is at one with his playmates. — Never, "for the sake of peace and quiet," deny your own experience or convictions.

The only kind of dignity which is genuine is that which is not diminished by the indifference of others.

Pray that your loneliness may spur you into finding something to live for, great enough to die for.

Never measure the height of a mountain until you have reached the top. Then you will see how low it was. " less
