KIRKUS REVIEW

A well known poet with a new collection, in conventionalized but sure and finished forms, somewhat romantic, lofty in general tenor. The greater part of the volume consists of a long sonnet sequence, with a dual theme, expressed in ""man's world of good and evil is his own, not nature's "", the beauty, solace of nature juxtaposed against man's hatred, his ""cold, deliberate wars"", his solitude. Further lyrics, poetic notes, with a good many poems of today and the war. High level.
