Title of page incorrect: hyphen should be removed.[edit]

The title of the poem is "Musée des Beaux Arts" not "Musée des Beaux-Arts". Can the title of the page be changed to match this? Macspaunday 15:53, 26 December 2006 (UTC)

punctuation within poem[edit]

This is the internet version, does someone have the real book to check the spelling?

They never forgot
That even the dreadful martyrdom must run its course
Anyhow in a corner, some untidy spot
Where the dogs go on with their doggy life and the torturer's horse
Scratches its innocent behind on a tree.

Ok, there's also this, but still, the sentence is strange...FlammingoHey 10:14, 25 April 2007 (UTC)
That's a bad link. What is strange exactly? Johnbod (talk) 16:27, 29 April 2013 (UTC)

Commons image deletion discussion[edit]

Hi, I have raised commons:Commons:Deletion requests/Image:AudenVanVechten1939.jpg to discuss two images, one used on this article and the article of W. H. Auden. Cheers, John Vandenberg (talk) 03:11, 1 January 2008 (UTC)

external link[edit]

The link should be deleted. Besides being a dubious reading, it's a commercial site, and there are numerous misspellings and grammatical errors in the reading. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 14:44, 11 September 2010 (UTC)

I very strongly agree. Just removed the link. I suppose it was a joke to begin with; if it wasn't, then it was a sorry piece of "scholarship" and had no business being on here. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 21:21, 16 December 2011 (UTC)

Brueghel or Breughel?[edit]

Does anyone have an explanation for why the (attributed) painter's name is spelled "Breughel" in this poem in spite of usually being "Brueghel" in other sources? (talk) 18:39, 9 December 2010 (UTC)

Can I insert text of poem under fair use?[edit]

Hi, I am new to editing and would like to try my hand on this article. Does anyone know if I am allowed to fully transcribe Auden's poem in the article or is it protected by copyright? Would transcribing the one poem be considered fair use? Paul650 (talk) 16:04, 29 April 2013 (UTC)Paul650

No, I imagine not, or it would have been done before. Johnbod (talk) 16:26, 29 April 2013 (UTC)
