Another Time was the first volume that Auden published after his departure to America with Christopher Isherwood in January 1939. It was dedicated to Chester Kallman. The poems, some of which date from the early thirties, are about people, places and the intellectual climate of the times, and they show greater variety of tone and technique than in any previous book of Auden's. Some of his most famous and often quoted (or misquoted) lines appear in their original form, including the text of two poems in particular - Spain 1937 and September 1, 1939 - that he later altered or repudiated.
[He] has made himself into a kind of unofficial poet laureate. If I am bombed I hope he will write a few Sapphics about me.' - Stephen Spender, 1941
