This little volume of sonnets does for our day what the Spoon River Anthology did some time ago in free verse, and there is wit, cynicism and a sense of form in these brief sketches of country lives. The locale is different, as this is New England, and the characters illustrate the full cycle completed in the last generation, the death of the hearth, the growth of wit, and a new acknowledgement of the trickeries and ironies of life. The poems may not have a lasting quality, but they are bright and amusing, adult and topical.
