  • Dr. Farah, Dr. Shaifali R. Puri


Primarily Auden and Rautroy are intentional,' moral poets. From the very outset of their careers they were mindful of the fall in the position of man and they continuously fought for a better state. Because of their societal concern, they became renowned as social poets in the 'thirties. No question, the early poems of Auden (which he subsequently repudiated) and Rautroy revealed a certain immaturity as, to start with, a teenage passionate individualism conditioned their creative endeavor. But they rapidly transcended their early subjectivism and acutely responded to the moods and ambitions, the fears and anxieties, prevailing in the moment.
