KIRKUS REVIEW

This collection of short poetic essays is to be published on the author's 70th birthday, and fittingly includes an introduction by Frank S. Mead in interpretation and appreciation of this veteran poet and author of 55 books. Rutledge is one who has a discerning eye for beauty whether in nature or in the human personality and in these essays he opens up to the reader in luminous fashion the beauty he has discovered in life. Writing from his South Carolina plantation, Rutledge has much to say of the beauty of character he has found in the Negroes thereabouts. A broad humanitarian and religious spirit is reflected on these pages.
