Tribute to Auden
An expressive portrait of Auden sits on a plinth with raised text. The wording is a stanza from the poem ‘The More Loving One’.
The question How should we like it were stars to burn with a passion for us we could not return sits below the statement If equal affection cannot be let the more loving one be me
The quotation feels emblematic of Auden’s largeness of heart, and the fate of the principal relationship in his life.
Cast plaster head. Plinth cast in Crystacal, a hard plaster.
