[Science] The unacknowledged legislators of the world W.H. Auden hated Percy Bysshe Shelley’s apothegm that poets are “the unacknowledged legislators of the world.” That phrase, he wrote, “describes the secret police, not the poets.” Having put his poetic talents in service of the political Left for most of the 1930s, he had come to believe that the “integrity of a writer is more threatened by appeals to his social conscience, his political or religious convictions,” than by appeals to his wallet. That realization made him renounce those of his political poems — notably “September 1, 1939,” written to record the author's thoughts and feelings on the occasion of the Nazi invasion of Poland, the outbreak of World War II — containing “false emotions, inflated rhetoric, empty sonorities.” His political poems had, in a sense, made him a poetic legislator — or, more plainly, a propagandist.
