• About feelings, fog and forebodings, about the sense of a birth of good against gathering odds, The Auden Generation is wonderfully accurate, never smart or superficial and always sympathetic. A good and necessary book.

    Geoffrey Grigson, Country Life
  • His extremely lucid, readable and intelligent study of the literary history of England in the Thirties greatly enlarges the reader's view of the generation.

    Stephen Spender, New Statesman
  • Stimulating and authentic... Hynes's judicious choice of example and avoidance of muddying inclusivity, his ability to make critical connections and his clarity of argument, all these qualities give his book unity, give it indeed its definitive scope.

    John Fuller, The Times Literary Supplement
  • Superb.

    Michael Ratcliffe, The Times
