    • POET: WH Auden (2/11/2007 3:54:00 AM)

      This poem is, in fact, a dialogue between a man of words and a man of action. The former has been called reader, fearer and horror; the latter has been referred to as rider, farer and hearer. Throughout the poem the reader keeps trying to frighten the rider mentally, psychologically and emotionally. He does not want the rider to embark on the expedition he intends to. The rider, our man of action, however, pays no heed to the imagined apprehensions of the reader and leaving them with the reader darts off. The poet’s use of consonance in the expressions “reader – rider, midden – madden, fearer - farer, looking – lacking, hearer – horror and softly – swiftly” is really genius.
