Mr Anthony Powell's biography is not only the first on this versatile and interesting figure but also provides, for a backcloth, a unique pictureof intellectual and bohemian life during the latter part of the seventeent h century." - from the dustjacket.

Auden's belief that 'biographies of writers ... are always superfluous and usually in bad taste,' for 'no knowledge of the raw ingredients will explain the peculiar flavor of the verbal dishes he invites the public to taste: his private life is, or should be, of no concern to anybody except himself, his family, and his friends.' However, he goes on to admit, 'this compilation is a sort of autobiography.' Thus 'A Certain World', wherein one of the greatest living poets selects and comments on the reading that has meant most to him, is the nearest thing to an Auden autobiography we are ever likely to get." - from the dj.
