Abstract

There is no poetry in NERR Proceedings. So I'm going to rectify that and start with a few lines from a poem by W.H. Auden that have both amused and taunted me since I read them over 30 years ago. Entitled, "Under Which Lyre," it was the Phi Beta Kappa poem, delivered at Harvard University, in 1946. Auden compared the lyres of Apollo and Hermes to convey his concerns with changes he saw happening in America's universities. Two verses in early parts in the piece establish the main point, followed by Auden's advice in the closing verses.
