Many items were not previously published; others appeared in revised form. Many of the essays are revised versions of Auden's lectures as Professor of Poetry at Oxford University, 1956-61, and includes Auden's inaugural lecture, "Making, Knowing and Judging."

The book is dedicated to Auden's tutor at Oxford, Nevill Coghill.
