Auden, W. H. [Wystan Hugh]
b. 1907, London, England; d. 1973, Vienna, Austria.
Considered one of the greatest modernist writers, he was briefly associated with the GPO Film Unit in Britain. He contributed to documentary films like Coal Face (1935) and Night Mail (1936) with scripts, poems and songs that experimented with avant-garde forms, raw references to modern life and media, and a proletarian nerve.
