STOP ALL THE CLOCKS: WH Auden in an Age of Anxiety, a new film by Adam Low.

The film features the following writers and poets: Alan Bennett, Polly Clark (that’s me! Among icons!), Richard Curtis, James Fenton, Alexander McCall Smith and Paul Muldoon sharing our passion for Auden’s work and his enduring appeal.

I posted HERE about the experience of contributing to the film. Auden’s little known but formative years in Helensburgh, teaching at Larchfield School informed The Orators and inspired my debut novel Larchfield.

In the photo of the boys at Larchfield School (above), Auden is fourth from the right. We think Cecil Day Lewis is fourth from the left.
