Somebody just tweeted a link to an amazing article about the personal life of early 20th century poet and playwright W.H. Auden. Auden was a practicing Christian. This article describes just how seriously he took Christ’s command not to do good deeds “to be seen by men”. In this world of reality television, which respects no boundaries and keeps no secrets, reading this article provided a real boost to my morale.
I knew Auden was a good poet and playwright. I had no idea that he was such a good man as well.
