our man in New Mexico

There is a story about Auden and Spender in New Mexico, as they went visiting Freida Lawrence, the wife of the then deceased DH Lawrence. It alleges that while staying with Lawrence they visited a wealthy benefactor's home, where Auden got very drunk and threw deck chairs into the swimming pool and broke several expensive items. The violent reaction was his lamenting that creatively untalented Americans' could have all the money in the world, but that artistic talent (his?) went grossly unrewarded.

I couldn't decide whether or not to post about Auden or Lawrence, unfortunatly this mis-post is all that is forthcoming at the minute. With the promise of more tomorrow. Maybe.
