The New Barbarian

W.H. Auden (1907-1973), "The Age of Anxiety," Collected Poems (New York: Vintage Books, 1991), p. 460:
But the new barbarian is no uncouth
Desert-dweller; he does not emerge
From fir forests; factories bred him;
Corporate companies, college towns
Mothered his mind, and many journals
Backed his beliefs. He was born here.
