T HE UNKNOWN CITIZEN W. H. A UDEN The Poem He was married and added five children to the population, Which our Eugenist says was the right number for a parent of his generation, And our teachers report that he never interfered with their education. Was he free? Was he happy? The question is absurd: Had anything been wrong, we should certainly have heard. The Analysis He was married and had five kids. Which was the average amount of children for that time. He was a good parent and wanted his kids to learn. Although he seems perfect, was he happy, or free? If not they would have known.
