Auden: Six Unexpected Days

Sunday 18 February 2007 21:30-22:15 (Radio 3)

Marking the centenary of the birth of WH Auden, poet Paul Farley crosses the Northern Pennines following an itinerary suggested by Auden in an article for American Vogue in 1954. Paul investigates how this once thriving mining area, renowned for its limestone, exerted a powerful influence over the young Auden and how it continued to resonate in his poetry throughout a career which lasted more than half a century.
