How to love all Mankind, while politely keeping it out of your garden

"There are so many subjects, and so many typologies, that it is surprising to see how reliably, in the end, Auden returns to a single theme: the reconciliation of the Christian idea that salvation depends on indiscriminate universal love, exploding categories and communities, with the classical idea that only small circles of friends and lovers can console us for the world's evil. All the essays (and poems, too) might be gathered under a single heading: How to Love All Mankind, While Politely Keeping It Out of Your Garden."
Sobre W. H. Auden, "The double Man", de Adam Gopnik, "The New Yorker"
