W. H. Auden’s classic long poem, now in Faber’s poetry typographic series.
When The Orators was originally published in 1932 it was described by Poetry Review as ‘something as important as the appearance of Mr Eliot’s poems fifteen years ago’. A long poem written in both prose and verse, it was a powerful addition to the canon of modernist poetry.
