Auden

Accurate Scholarship can

Unearth the whole offence

From Luther until now

That has driven a culture mad,

Find what occurred at Linz,

What huge imago made

a psychopathic god:

I and the public know

What all schoolchildren learn,

Those to whom evil is done

Do evil in return.

From September 1, 1939 by W. H. AUDEN

Du lebst noch! Immer wieder gut, bei Dir vorbeizuschauen. (Ich hoffe, Du erkennst mich -- habe mich gerade an Dich erinnert, weil ich mein eigenes Blog-Archiv von Anno 2001 wieder gelesen habe.)
