    Abstract:
    This review shows how Auden was a philosopher of religion and therefore, this review calls for reassessing the poet Auden as a philosopher concerned with prayer and the necessity of the transcendent in life. We often forget how some of the greatest Marx-influenced poets have contributed deeply to religious literature. The review has a very important part on the Metaphysical poets; especially George Herbert.
    Notes:
    The reviewer has reviewed two volumes of Auden's prose. This is one of those reviews.
