Famous Anglo-American poet W.H. Auden once taught in the 92nd Street Y’s Unterberg Poetry Center (officially known as the New York City’s  92nd Street Young Men’s and Young Women’s Hebrew Association).

Here is a copy of an assignment he gave to students, in January 1956, who were attending his ‘Form and Style in Poetry’ course.

Auden Assignment

Do you want to give it a go? 😉

I’d love to see what people come up with. If you feel the urge to complete the assignment you can email me (gbryden at bigpond dot com) the ‘result’ in the next couple of weeks and if it fits the bill I will post it on my blog.

I’ll throw my hat in the ring and then we can say we were taught by W.H. Auden 😀
