From the Dust Jacket :
THE AGE OF ANXIETY BY W.H.Auden
Mr. Auden's latest poem, The Age of Anxiety, is an eclogue; that is to say, it adopts the pastoral convention in which a natural setting is contrasted with an artificial style of diction. The setting, in this case, is a bar on Third Avenue, New York City, later an apartment on the West Side, the time an All-Souls' Night during the late war. The characters, a woman and three men, two in uniform, speak in alliterative verse.
