This poem can be found under at least four titles. There is some confusion and much discussion on Usenet about the original title of this poem. The following information is mainly taken from newsgroup postings. The title "Funeral Blues" was used in a publication 3 years after Auden's death, presumably with the knowledge and permission of Auden's literary executors, amongst whom was Edward Mendelson, unchallenged in his role as Auden's chief editor, biographer and critic. Professor Mendelson himself used that title for the poem when editing "Collected Poems" (1976).
Prettiest Words, Alphabetized (1,027) Abattoir: a slaughterhouse; massacre Absinthe: wormwood liquor of a bright-green color
