Letters from Iceland by W.H. AudenThis highly amusing and unorthodox travel book resulted from a light-hearted summer journey by the young poets Auden and MacNeice in 1936. Their letters home, in verse and prose, are full of private jokes and irreverent comments about people, politics, literature and ideas. Letters from Iceland is one of the most entertaining books in modern literature; from Audens Letter to Lord Byron and MacNeices Eclogue, to the mischief and fun of their joint Last Will and Testament, the book is impossible to resist - a 1930s classic.
