A CERTAIN WORLD A COMMON PLACE BOOKI realize...that this compilation is a sort of autobiography ... a map of my planet. by W.H. Auden, printed in1974. This item is a book of 5"by7 3/4"438page softcover copy. This item is infair condition with a little bitofrubbing and scuffing of the covers and spine,some of the first few pages are starting to come loose from the binding.Chapters include:Biographies of writers, whether written by others or themselves, are always superfluous and usually in a bad taste. A writer is a maker, not a man of action. To be sure, some in a sense all, of his works are transmutations of his personal experiences, but no knowledge of the raw ingredients will explain the peculiar flavor of the verbal dishes he invites the public to taste, and much, much more.
