(E) changes the meaning of original question---> definitely out
"professed" is an adjective which supports "disdain"; C and D break that function of " professed" ----> out.
Between A and B, A is more concise.

A also claims that Auden was a hypocrite. Any literary buffs out there that can confirm this?
