More Information
Louis Macneice, born 19077 and died 1963 is often compared to Auden and Spender, due mainly to the satirical and ironic nature of his work. All of his UK first editions are collectable and of some value. As usual, the earlier titles are the rarest and most valuable, the first book on Gollancz especially so. The English editions tend to precede the American and are regarded as more collectable. We have included all the contemporaneous American edition as and when applicable, also any alternative titles. His only novel was written under the pseudonym of Louis Malone, as far as we know, he wrote under no other names.
