"There are brighter moments in this treasure-trove of a book, such as his description of a visit to Yale in the 1960s by Auden, wearing 'a frayed, buttonless overcoat, which my wife insisted on mending.' And 'His luggage was an attaché case containing a large bottle of gin, a small one of vermouth, a plastic drinking cup, and a sheaf of poems.' We are told that Auden described Bloom as 'a dotty don,' and then assured him he liked dotty dons." John Montague • Irish Times
