    W.H. Auden's 'The Shield of Achilles' and its sources
    (Australasian Universities Language and Literature Association, 1974-11) Daalder, Joost
    W.H. Auden's 'The Shield of Achilles', the title poem of the volume published by Faber and Faber in 1955, is coming to be regarded, and rightly so, as one of his finest and most significant creations after World War II. However, commentators on the poem (most of whom have offered a few brief remarks only) show little awareness of the sources which underlie it.

    (Western Washington State College, 1972) Daalder, Joost

    Yeats and Auden: Some Verbal Parallels
    (Oxford University Press, 1973) Daalder, Joost
    As has been previously observed, Auden verbally resembles Yeats on more than one occasion, and Yeats sometimes resembles Auden. But, as far as Daalder is aware, several genuine or possible parallels are yet to be discussed. Daalder's examples are meant to suggest that Auden imitates Yeats, alludes to him, or shows kinship with him; in this article, Daalder is not, however, concerned with Auden's impact on Yeats.
