Auden and Isherwood: The Berlin Years

by

Auden and Isherwood: The Berlin Years Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Like Paris in the twenties, Berlin in the early thirties was one of the most exciting cities in the world. As the Weimar Republic sputtered to a close and war loomed on the horizon, the city was a magnet for talented writers and artists. It was in this now-vanished time and place that W.H. Auden and Christopher Isherwood lived, wrote and slept together. Norman Page tells the story of how these years shaped these important writers and, in doing so, illuminates a bygone era.

Synopsis:

A unique biography of two literary giants and the city that was to change their lives.

About the Author

Norman Page is Emeritus Professor of modern English language at the University of Nottingham. He has published widely on literature and has lectured in many parts of the world.
