Stephen Spender, part II

Date
1959
Summary
Louis Simpson, a poet and teacher at the University of California at Berkeley, relates that Stephen Spender’s interest in the relationship between poetry and the subjects of war and politics goes back to his days at Oxford. He discusses Spender’s activity during the Spanish Civil War and World War II and says his poems of war and love have a panoramic sweep. Spender then reads “Two Armies,” “The Guns,” “The Window,” “Ice,” “The Little Coat,” “Song,” and “Elegy for Margaret.”
