    • POEM: Funeral Blues by W.H. Auden (10/10/2007 6:02:00 PM)

      This poem, in my opinion, is the most succinct description of any person's feeling after death. I have lost many friends, despite my short life, and yet this poem seems to sum up the way I have felt after their deaths. I, in all honesty, believed at the time I first heard the poem, that it may have been an Atheistic monologue (the Message 'He is dead' - possibly referring to God as 'He') , yet having since seen the emotion that John Hannah put into his recital in Four Weddings and A Funeral (myself being a John Hannah fan, and that being the only reason I watched the film...) , I have come to accept that while it can be interpreted at atheistic, it is first and foremost the single most beautiful poem in reference to personal loss that has ever been written, and for this W.H. Auden is to be commended.
