Paul Kildea's biography of the composer Benjamin Britten got off to a bad start by promising startling new revelations. Britten revelations tend to be about specially favoured boys, and this biographer's diagnosis raised a certain amount of interest through its novelty . The days after VE Day were perfect for a tragic English opera with an English setting, and its musical excellences were supplemented by a sense of its national significance. Britten's timing was good, and his luck even better.

Edward Benjamin Britten, Baron Britten OM CH (22 November 1913 – 4 December 1976) was an English composer, conductor and pianist. He was a central figure of 20th-century British classical music, with a range of works including opera, other vocal music, orchestral and chamber pieces. His best-known works include the opera Peter Grimes (1945), the War Requiem (1962) and the orchestral showpiece The Young Person's Guide to the Orchestra (1945).
On This Island was Britten’s first published group of songs with piano. It sets five poems by . Auden from the collection Look, Stranger! which had been published in 1936 and which included two poems dedicated to Britten. Compared to Britten’s previous song cycle, Our Hunting Fathers, which has a quasi-symphonic unity, On This Island is more a sequence of self-contained vignettes, perhaps reflecting the recent experience of composing the Variations on a Theme of Frank Bridge.
