The Prolific And The Devourer review è 103 N contains a series of aphoristic statements and personal reflections that usher us into the enormous territory to be explored In the second section Auden chooses examples from politics religion and literature to expound his views on human and historical evolution The third section examines the characters of the Prolific and the Devourer in relation to Catholic Protestant andRomantic traditions and to Socialist and Fascist beliefs The uestion and answer form employed in the final section allows Auden to reveal his inner struggle to reach some understanding of God the supernatural and pacifism At a time when spiritual and political values are c.

The Prolific And The Devourer review è 103 WH Auden is unuestionably one of the most fascinating and influential literary figures of the twentieth century His formal innovations in poetry and drama have immeasurably affected modern literary consciousness as have his reactive views about political and literary trends At the time he wrote The Prolific and the Devourer Auden was moving away from his vocal Marxism of the 1930s toward a committed Christianity in the 1940s and beyond The Prolific and the Devourer sheds new light on the personal and public worlds he inhabited philosophically drawing the line between the position of the artist and that of the politician The book takes its titl. This is an extremely interesting book It supplies much of that shaggy old friend of the reader food for thought I believe a complete understanding of this book reuires a knowledge of the life of Auden a deep understanding of Marxism and of Christian theology both Catholic and Protestant and a thorough knowledge of the world as it was when the book was originally written in 1939 Lacking these things I still very much enjoyed the book Auden s ideas are certainly accessible and the presentation lends itself to at least a surface understanding of what is being presented Auden is primarily concerned here with two if not THE two aspects of society religion and politics While a theologian or political theorist might find the discussion here to be one of basic principles I found the concepts to be fascinating This seems to be a very personal book it rather gives the impression of Auden working through his own beliefs without attempting to be at all didactic Here are two uotations from the book that particularly caught my attention To do evil is to act contrary to self interest It is possible for all living creatures to do this because their knowledge of their self interest is false or inadeuate Thus the animals whose evolution is finished ie whose knowledge of their relations to the rest of creation is fixed can do evil but they cannot sinOnly our corruption prevents us from realising that money is in essence only a techniue for the extension of love in space and time

The Prolific And The Devourer review è 103 E and in part its form from William Blake's The Marriage of Heaven and Hell In Auden's interpretation the Prolific are those who produce the farmer; the skilled worker; the scientist; the cook; the innkeeper; the doctor; the teacher; the athlete; the artist The Devourers are the political types who depend on what is already produced for their well being the Judges Policemen Critics These are the real Lower Orders the low sly lives whom no decent person should receive in his house As in Blake the sections and subsections of Auden's book are unified and propelled by the oracular need to express the key components of human nature The first sectio. Una lectura densa el pensamiento de Auden es claro y da mucho para meditar Su forma de abordar el cristianismo es muy l cida y cuando habla de la pol tica es todo un maestroDice tantas verdades ue al reconocerlas en uno mismo es un acto de valent a
