Dean Address Quoted Auden

TO THE EDITORS

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

Reading through The Crimson's Commencement edition, I noticed an error which I'd like to correct! In Sarah Scrogin's story on Class Day ("Class Day Speeches Remember, Look Forward," news story, June 8, 1995), she makes reference to Clark Dean's address. She writes, "Dean referred to a poem by W.H. Auden titled 'Icarus' which he learned about in Gen Ed 105: The Literature of Social Reflection."

Actually, Clark was speaking of Auden's poem, 'Musee des Beaux Arts." "Icarus" is the title of the Breughel painting, the inspiration behind Auden's words. It's a wonderful poem. Christina S. Griffith   Assistant Dean of Freshman and General Education 105   Teaching Assistant
