After a few months in Berlin in —29 he spent five years —35 teaching in English public schools, then travelled to Iceland and China in order to write books about his journeys.

In he moved to the United States and became an American citizen in He taught from through in American universities, followed by occasional visiting professorships in the s. From through he wintered in New York and summered in Ischia; from until the end of his life he wintered in New York in Oxford in —73 and summered in Kirchstetten, Austria.

Auden's poetry was noted for its stylistic and technical achievement, its engagement with politics, morals, love, and religion, and its variety in tone, form and content. He came to wide public attention at the age of twenty-three, in , with his first book, Poems , followed in by The Orators. Three plays written in collaboration with Christopher Isherwood in —38 built his reputation as a left-wing political writer.

Auden moved to the United States partly to escape this reputation, and his work in the s, including the long poems For the Time Being and The Sea and the Mirror , focused on religious themes. He won the Pulitzer Prize in Poetry for his long poem The Age of Anxiety , the title of which became a popular phrase describing the modern era. In —61 he was Professor of Poetry at Oxford; his lectures were popular with students and faculty and served as the basis of his prose collection The Dyer's Hand.

Auden was a prolific writer of prose essays and reviews on literary, political, psychological and religious subjects, and he worked at various times on documentary films, poetic plays, and other forms of performance. Throughout his career he was both controversial and influential, and critical views on his work ranged from sharply dismissive, treating him as a lesser follower of W. Yeats and T. Eliot, to strongly affirmative, as in Joseph Brodsky's claim that he had "the greatest mind of the twentieth century.

I forget the story as soon as I have finished it, and have no wish to read it again. If, as sometimes happens, I start reading one and find after a few pages that I have read it before, I cannot go on. Such reactions convince me that, in my case at least, detective stories have nothing to do with works of art. It is possible, however, that an analysis of the detective story, i. The basic formula is this: a murder occurs; many are suspected; all but one suspect, who is the murderer, are eliminated; the murderer is arrested or dies.
